    What XT crank is this?

    What XT crank is this?

    Is that a stock ring?

    Does it have/use a spider?

    If I'm not mistaken, it's an '03 model. They use a spider attachemnt similar to XTR. Its a 64/104 bolt pattern. Pretty sweet looking bike. I wish they'd build one to fit me dammit. And I wish they'd build that MTB they've been thinking about forever now.
    Just a regular guy.

    It's a nice ride. I love mine (pictured here) but thought I might change it around a bit and use the XT cranks. Nothings wrong with mine but I never feel like any bike I ever build is actually "done". It's a sickness which I am sure many people can understand.

    I wish they would make a MTB too. All I can say is that a very cool new frame "should" be coming late summer or early fall. As far as rumors go: canti posts, 700c/29er wheels with room for really big tires, and horizontal dropouts for single/fixed or derailleur application. This is still a rumor but like Surly rumors they usually come true.

    As for fit, what size road bike do you use? A fixed frame with a higher bottom bracket (compared to a road bike) should be fitted one size smaller like a cross bike. I ride a 54cm road bike which means that I should have purchased a 52cm Kogswell but since they do not make one I just got the 54 and said the heck with standover clearance which is not as much a problem on a road bike anyway.

    Thanks again!

    I'm 6'5". The 58 just wouldn't fit. Besides, the TT is too short. The P1 they're coming out with is too spendy. I like the price of the fixy. I think that a mugged MTB with Surly KM-style horizontals would sell like hotcakes. His models actually remind me a bit of Vanilla's and we all know what a Vanilla sighting does to this board. You can literally hear the drool hitting the floor! I'll certainly keep my eyes out for this new model. I'm in the market for a cheaper SS 29" mtb. Can't wait!

    Yep

    I go those cranks on my gearie, but the diff between those and the XTRs is that the spider is not removable on the XTs, so no suffer-rings for XT.

    Phil hubs will be going on the future custom fixie frame that will be made out of good old Titanium. I have started "the fund" already.
