    X9 Crankset w/ GXP BB - $100 at Merlin

    This is a crazy good deal for a versatile crankset that can even be setup spiderless with a direct mount chainring a la AbsoluteBlack. In fact, I ordered 3 of these to avoid the shipping charge, and just sold the 2 extra for $180/ea on eBay. After the eBay fees, I made $5 and got a free X9 crankset and BB.

    Couldnt stand it anymore. Just pieced together a complete X9/XT 10 speed drivetrain for $300.

    Everything except a SLX front derailleur from Jenson @ $7.99

    Ordered Friday - delivered to the US Wednesday. Everything looks great. Can't wait to set it up!

    I wasn't sure which BB would come with the cranks - regular threaded or press fit. It came with the threaded.

    XT shifters weren't supposed to come with cables but they did - bonus!

    Crap. I was thinking about getting another one. For the record, the 881g advertised weight (with BB) is on the money.

    I recently bought a race face evolve ss crankset for the same price and since my current bike has the same x9 chain rings it would have been less expensive in the long run too.

    Have you guys received your cranks yet. I put in my order on Nov 1 and still nothing. I've been dealing with someone at Merlin, but I think he's pretty much got his hands tide. Based on tracking they've been in New York since the 3rd of Nov. I don't want to loose out with Paypal if things go south.

    Yes. I ordered mine on a Saturday and they were delivered in PA on the following Wednesday. Sounds like they're tied up in customs.

    I don't know if it got lost in the whole government shut down or what. Either way I finally opened a claim on Paypal. My last two emails to them went unanswered. Time to move on and find something else.
