Hey guys and gals,
Apologies in advance if this is not the right way to pose a question. I need some help to determine the right crankset for my bike. I've done some research, but was hoping that the vast experience of some forum members may help narrow the search.
I've got a 09 Fisher Cobia. Will be running X.9 med cage out back on a X.0 11-32. Bought it for the frame, and budgeted for some upgrades of my choice rather than the all-Bontrager route. I would like to switch to a 2X9 drivetrain since I rarely use anything other than the 32T middle ring up front. My wish list includes:
-2 ring front crankset
-175mm or 180mm crank arms (pref. 180)
-external bottom bracket
- 4 arm or very common BCD (for some RaceFace turbine rings)
-Would like to get a 26-38 setup, but if it is a universal BCD I'll pay to swap out the rings.
-White in color would be nice, but not a biggie
-Under $250 incl BB would be nice as well. Not gonna get into carbon, and I'm okay with that.
What I've found:
-White Industries are nice, but proprietary rings
-FSA have horror stories from my LBS, not big on the 27-40
-Race Face are great, but proprietary BB
-Truvativ Stylo is cool, unsure about the ring configuration.
I appreciate any help that you guys may be able to provide. Also open to opinions on gearing (I did the Gain Ration calculations, but I'm still not sure). I've got legs, but I don't know how I'll feel after 10 miles. Sometimes I like the granny.
