    sram spiderless cranks???

    I know some of the new sram are spiderless, but can't seem to figure out which ones...and i know about middleburn and the old 952 stuff, just needing some links or pix of the new and currently available stuff.
    thanks

    All X.0, all X.9, and the S1400 X.7 model have removable spiders

    Add the AKA 1.1G Singlespeed crank to the list as well. It too has a removable spider.

    Helpful thread, I purchased a S1400 X7 crank set for cheap. Any leads on getting a spiderless chain ring quickly? (HBC can take 5 to 8 weeks, I have ordered from there before and currently have a spiderless ring on order.) thanks

    The only chainwheel for SRAM splines is HBC.

    I'm in the exact same boat, but we knew of the wait time before we ordered so it's no big deal. At least I'm up and running with a different setup in the meantime

    actually i've seen a few X9's that did not have a removable spider. I do not know how old they were, but the last one i saw was a double ring bb30. Kinda weird, i thought the same thing as you for a while.

    Maybe I'm stating the obvious but you can also tell from a picture. You can see the "seam" around the removable spider

    Removable:




    Non-removable:

    My SLX cranks have a seam around the spider, but alas it is not removable.
    I see hills.

    I want to climb them.

    he's only refering to Sram x series cranks, which is indeed correct. No Shimano cranks have a removable spider, except the oldies.

    Market cornered, well done Isar.

    Does sram know it's building the X0 - X7 cranks with an optional spiderless interface but not offering an optional chain ring that accepts said interface? Yes, rhetorical, makes me feel less crazy asking it out loud.

    I wonder what the motive is behind making the spider removable? Maybe production is cheaper with one arm setup that can have a in 2x or 3x ring assembly bolted on, rather than having to tool for two versions of X7, X9, etc.

    This isn't necroposting I think, because the cranksets discussed are still offered.

    I think it is to make a crankset attractive to more customers because of more drivetrain setup possibilities, thus trying to gain advantage over the current market leader.


    Chainring production for those SRAM (Truvativ) cranksets is now gaining momentum. MRP and NSB (North Shore Billet) are already selling rings, including ones below 32T, and they all are intended to give 50 mm chainline on 68/73 mm BB shells. (in fact, MRP has been doing this for about a year already)

    HBC is selling chainrings?

    Anyway, I have one and it gives a 55 mm chainline on MTB cranks, 48 on roadies.

    Sorry, I meant NSB! Got lost between all those 3-letterisms. HBC rings are not offset inwards for 50 mm chainline.
