    Sram S2200. Same as the XO but without the price tag. you can pick new sets up on pink bike for really cheap.

    The only ones I have seen break are the XO's, but she will be fine. I have 2 seasons racing DH on my SIXC (have them on my light freeride bike too)

    was going to get the SIXC but the price was too good to pass on the XO's...plus MRP sells a direct mount for chainring so I can take off the spider arms saving more weight....right now with, seat, seat tube, headset, shock, spring, wheels, ,incuding tires, rotors and casett..the bike is weighing just under 19 pounds !!!!

    pro vs someone who rides on the weekend is a huge difference in abuse and stresses put on the cranks. i had mine on for the entire summer and never once had an issue or a worry. not claiming to be pro or anything but i have been downhilling for a long time and the trails we have up in North Cali are very rocky. if he were to have an issue with them sram has a great warranty program.

    I've had the X0's and now have the SixC's...... I'll keep the SixC's just because of all the bad X0 pictures I've seen.

    You should come down to SLO or SB to see some rocky trails. Oh and thanks for your service. Yes Kyle is very hard on equipment snapped a chain and RF chainring in 1/2 alos has tore the lower off a few Fox 40's by hitting LG rocks at MACH RETARD

    yeah I wanted the sixc but the price was too low on the XO's to pass....really they won't be put to any abuse....for the wife...I don't see her ever doing a 2 1/2 drop...basically smoother dh trails like b-line...if it was for me then it would be different...I run the Saints

    yeah i have rode down in slow and sb before. they are very very rocky. the rocks we have up here are very sharp. that is what i should of said. he soulds like he is not the smoothest rider with how things are breaking for him. for me i am a weekend rider so they have been doing well for me. and thank you for your support
