    165mm Shimano cranks?

    I'm looking for a 165mm Shimano crankset or just crankarms. I don't need the chainrings, but the spider should have both the 104 and 64 bolt holes (so the single ring Saints are out).

    68/73mm BB.

    Any good deals out there?

    I think your best option is XT M780 triple cranks at wiggle.com for $178 with 12-extra coupon and free shipping = $160 shipped. Sell the rings and you'll have your cranks and BB for less than $100.

    Forgot to mention the 12-extra code requires a ~ $238 spend to activate, so you'll need to find $60 of additional items to use the code. Shimano pedals are very cheap at wiggle.

    Check CRC and Bluesky. I remember looking at some cheap cranks on clearance and seeing that they were only 165.

    I picked up a full set of the Shimano SLX in 165mm for only $49 on year end close out sale (JensonUSA).
    You can find the SLX in 165mm for cheap and the weight and performance diff is almost nothing compard to the XT units.
    You can also search ebay for 165mm Shimano and you will find plenty of options.
