    Cranks?

    I am really getting into Adventure Racing and I am building up my bike. The crank that came on the bike is a TruVativ Five D. I havenít read too many positives about that crank set. Any recommendations in the 100-200 price range? I want something light, fast, and reliable.

    FSA Team carbon (were some onsale at Sierra trading post though pickings are slim)
    American Classic ISIS BB

    Ritchey WCS ISIS (blue color) at ebay- at $80 this is the absolute best bang/buck for weight and cost

    Chain reaction cycles. Most people love them. Cost is good for 2005-2006 closeouts. If you have issues with your knees and q-factor these may be too wide.

    Race Face makes some nice cranks, im assuming you mostly ride XC, this crank is really nice and its good for peeps on a budget.
