Build new SS Specialized (doubt crankset)
I bought a new Specialized Stumpjumper SS frame and I need your advice on that crankset use.
I like shimano XT but I'm sure there must be many better (or more appropriate) for singlespeed bike.
There is some model specific Deore XT for SS? since most that I see on the market are for multiple speeds..
In the specialized website the description of the original equipment of this bike says:
Single speed specific, wide-based, heat-treated Cr-Mo, 20t
KMC X10, 10-speed, w/ reuseable Missing Link, nickel plates
Custom SRAM S-1250, 7050 alloy arms, 32t single ring, GXP spindle, 15.5: 175mm, others: 180mm
On that basis, what do you recommend? based on the experience of the members of this forum..
Shimano XT or another one?
Which seller you recommend me?
Greetings from Uruguay
Sorry for my bad english
Xt cranks are a solid choice. Other options are sram x9 (aluminum) and up (x0 and xx1 are carbon) cranks with a spider less chain ring for a clean single ring look. Also now have race face cranks with spiderless ring options. I like old shimano 960 cranks. Otherwise anything else out there you can find SS ring for 104 bcd bolt patterns
As much as I love some fancy cranks, cranks are cranks. As the above poster states, the Sram cranks can look a bit 'cleaner,' in single speed mode, but I've run cranks like XTs on a SS with not issues. Set up correctly, the bike (and you) won't know any different.
If you've got XTs already, or a line ones for cheap, there's no reason to pass them by.
I choose the XT, but as I'm new to singlespeed world you could tell me if this set is right for me?
1) New Shimano XT Crankset FC M780 175mm | eBay
2) Shimano XT M760 32T 104mm 9 Speed Chainring | eBay
or I need a specific chainring for 1x? or this serves me?
I cannot find in eBay a chainring brand shimano 1x...
another question, the price is ok? or is it expensive?
you recommend me another seller? or this is a good price?
thank you very much

Save some money and use SLX cranks and then go to Velosolo for a chainring.
