    Recently Sainted Monkey

    So I made a little addition to the Monkey a few months ago. The weather here has been crap for off-roading, so I mostly have ridden the Monkey fixed gear since I added the Saint. Can I just say that crankset was made for riding fixed.

    Good for fixed gear

    I have found the Saint good for fixed gear because it is very, very stiff. The new crank/bottom bracket really is amazing compared to the 105 crankset I was using.

    Stiffer than new XT?

    Is it noticably stiffer than the new XT or Hone Crank? What about the Race Face stuff?
    MTBR is serious stuff.
