    EX 5.5 Crank Questions

    Hi all. First post but long time lurker. I have an 08 EX 5.5 that has about a year of riding. I am looking to upgrade the cranks from the octalinks that are on there. Does any one have any suggestions? I do alot of rides that consist of both roads and mountain/trails so i dont need anything crazy. I see alot of sets have a new BB also. How do i know if these will fit? Im trying to read and figure it out but i confuse myself!!

    What are your options?? I would look into an X type BB and crank. They are relatively lighter, stronger, and cheaper. Initial price may be more than you want to shell out but in the long run it is cheaper. Look at the newer LX, SLX, Raceface....

    i'd say the SLX or the LX if you can find it on closeout online.
