    Where can I find some 180 Turbine cranks?

    I really want to make the switch to 180mm cranks on my new-to-me Hunter SS. I am a big fan of Race Face and really would like to get a set of Turbine LPs in 180. Of course, I also want them to be square taper and compact 5 arm. Does anyone have any suggestions? BTW, I currently have a set of silver 175s if someone wants to trade, although they are pretty beat up.

    Thanks,
    Mark

    Speedgoat only has 170mm length left, at least according to their website. I have checcked all of the usual mailorder places with no luck. Those White Industries cranks look prety nice though!

    got some

    I've got a set that are in pretty good shape. For the right place, I'd part with them. Send me some email directly and we can work out the details if you want them.

    One thought..

    Mark,

    A bunch of people have broken the exact model RF cranks you want recently. When I cracked my Turbines RF no longer could replace them with 180mm models....

    Just an FYI.

    Have you looked a the White Ind. ENO's? The come in 180 and square taper and seem much stiffer and stronger.

    Thanks for the replies. I am aware of the recent broken cranks here. I was hoping that because I am pretty easy on my equipment and not too heavy that I would be OK. BTW, I am currently running a set of 175 Turbines that are about 10 years old with the granny ring holes stripped out and helicoils inserted. I am actually surprised these have not broken yet! So does any one else have suggestions to fit my criteria: Square taper, 180mm, and 94 BCD? The ENO cranks are a possibility, but they use a splined ring. I would really like to be able to use my collection of 94 BCD chainrings (including a Surly SS). Any other suggestions would be appreciated.

    look for some older Shimano XT cranks. You should be able to pick up a pair cheap. I'll keep my eyes open for some.
