    if you are looking for 180mm arms like i am then not good unless you dont care what you pay or have TONS of patience.

    you can get modded and coated ones here...

    http://www.ceramikoat.com/

    i talked to the owner and he seems like a good guy and has a really nice product. i was just hoping to get something a little cheaper and dont mind modding the arms myself but in the end i might end up going with him.

    other wise i have been watching both craiglist all over the country and ebay without much luck finding 180s.

    if you want 175s you should be able to find something without too much problem.

    I don't think I've ever seen 180's for sale. I've got some 175's (unmodded, all chainrings) for $200.

    But I prefer my XT and SLX cranks, as they have the more common 104bcd. Not that finding 102 is too hard (HBC), but I like the interchangability between all of my cranks, including my wife's.

    Chances are good. I watched eBay for a few weeks--there was always one or two sets available. They come and go, usually for a bit more than $100, depending mostly on what shape the rings are in. I got mine for $105 (w/o bb) shipped.

    I got mine with two rings and bb for $114 off ebay. I then worked with creamikoat to get them modded. Actually they were already modded but more like hacked up. I actually worked out a core charge thing with him because I needed a set of cranks to ride. Basically, he sent me a set already modded and coated and I sent mine to him once they arrived. Great guy. Great product. I think a new set from him modded and coated is around $300 but you are basically getting a brand new crank at that point.

    I got some 175's off ebay last year. I think I paid around $130 for the cranks and bb. I've thought about doing the mod but ended up buying the bash guard and a couple of different chainrings from HBC.

    i got my 970s for the same price ($130). they don't need to be hacked up so you're already one step ahead of the 960s. that, and the 970s use the more common 104bcd pattern.

    With the 970's worthless crankarm attachment and bearing preload, they're actually two steps behind the 960.

    you're absolutely right. the 960 is cutting edge technology with its cinch bolt attachment and proprietary 102BCD pattern.

    I've had two pairs of 180's. Exploded 'em both. I'm done with the 960's.

    Kudos to ISAR for producing his rings and cogs, but dare I say the majority of cyclists do not shop online for bike parts. I bet most of them go to the bike shop and have them order a new Shimano ring because there is no aftermarket. And IIRC, the LBS didn't sell any HBC so they'll be SOL.

    I've done many 960 SS mods the past few years and to date Tyrone is the only one to have them fail to my knowledge, and he's had it happen twice. The first time was due to a missing or loose ring bolt, but the second he actually broke the drive arm. Tyrone is a SS animal with calves the size of my thighs and they failed while mashing his 180,s with 36/16 gearing uphill, if my memory serves me right. A 175mm 960SS mod is light, avg wt. 535g with HBC 32t, steel ring bolts, and crank hardware.

    haha...indeed, the first instance was definitely due to operator error as I do believe one of the crank bolts came loose and then when cranking up a hill..then BAM...explosion. The second instance, I was indeed on a 36:16 gear (29'er) and I snapped the drive arm in half. Upon closer inspection of the arm though, it did look as though it took an impact by a flying rock or something right in the middle of that crank arm...so in all honestly, I think that arm got weakened by some other impact and then over time, the stress on the area just became too much.

    when I had them, I absolutely loved them. light and STIFF. Always got all my rings for the 102 bcd pattern from Homebrew and they are/were awesome as well and always easy to get.

    I LOVE the modded 960's. I looked for 3 months on ebay and did not find them in 180mm. 175mm with BB for $125 all day long though. I ended up with some 970's in 180mm and love them too. Before I had the 952 with a HBC spiderless ring and they looked boss but creaked like crazy. I was taking them apart every week and regreasing the BB cups. Coundn't stand it anymore and wanted to try something new. For what it's worth I like how the bearing preload works on the 970's and they are noticeably stiffer than the 952's. I'm still looking for some 960's though for another build.

    There's nothing I like more than reading comments from satisfied customer. I appreciate having your business and your posting the photo's of your Lynskey showing the 960SS set-up. The titanium ceramic is a good match with the ti frame.

    In the second pic, looking at the chain, is that the master link on bottom?

    Many thanks, crazy8
