    White Industries SS crank sets.....

    I got this email from Lynette of White industries this week. this is the piece of the puzzle I am missing to build up my PW Piss Off ...... so maybe the week end of the 27th, I will be a hoppy rider again....

    The cranks/rings should be available late next week. The biggest size
    will be 44t. I believe we will be offering 32t, 34t, 38t, 44t

    Lynette



    Yeaaaaah for me.....

    This is how it's held, if you look at the image.

    What are they made of??? I'll assume cold forged 7000 series Al? Do they do any special treatments to the crankarms like Race Face, who "align" the crystal structure of the metal during the forging process to increase stiffness? In other words, what makes the crank competitive among all the other available cranks out there? Especially considering their cost without incorporating any special BB technology like the new XT and XTR integrated BB with external bearings, which I might add other manufactures are jumping on this bandwagon, in particular, Race Face will be introducing their version of it soon.

    What makes them special?

    Probably not the metal they're made from, not the BB technology, but just the fact that they are SS specific and that they are made by White Industries.

    From a technology point of view, are nothing new. They are very gorgeous (although I'd personally like to see 'em in black)though and they will be pretty rare/unique & thus become a talking point.

    . Nothing wrong with square drive-proven technology. Isis has good crank/spindle interface, but crap bearings. XT/XTR/RF is new & unproven although does look promising.

    I thought I'd read somewhere that the crank & ring were going to be machined as one piece to ensure that the ring was perfectly round. Something that causes 'tight spots' on rings that are not prefectly round/mounted correctly, I certainly have a problem with an old XTR/Spot combo that cannot be corrected . Maybe not practical as you'd have to replace the rh crank when the ring was worn, less of an issue with SS though(ring wear)...???

    They make my shopping list......

    No 36t? oh well 38:18 is close enough!

    170mm cranks? 3/32" or 1/8"?

    Corky3 - I wouldn't say the XT/XTR stuff isn't proven. I've had 2 sets ging strong for a little over a year. Nothing but trouble free mile after mile out of them....
    If / When the bearings do go, I'll surely give the Phil Wood replacements the nod.
    I btw, have a full White Ind. Drivetrain coming to me As said above, about a week and a half out.
    On another note : Kinda funny how things come full circle.......Back to Square Taper & the trusty old UN72 BB.

    New question here.

    DMFT,

    How does the chainline work out with the new XTR/XT cranks? I've been considering an XT for my SS to replace my flexy Stylo SS. I'd prefer to run it w/ a 32 tooth ring in the outer position and am currently running Surly old style hubs.

    Thanks

    Mike

    Mike - I've been using the XTR stuff on my gearies.....But have seen them on SS's before.
    I think they'd work better with a cassette hub rather than a dedicated SS hub for chainline adjustment.

    Hi DM...

    I take your point about XTR being used for around a year, but I have also seen/heard reports about poor bearing sealing and failed axles...... for me it's still unproven anyway..... but I have one on my geared bike.:-)

    The ENO cranks seem to fit with the KISS SS mentality.....plain & simple.

    Be sure to post pics when you get yours?

    Thanks

    Them cranks are so simple, and pretty. I have my LX with a SPOT ring and KOOKA bash guard just for ego huevo like looks. But the ENO cranks are simple to maintain. All you need to do when you've worn out teeth is to remove the lockring, and slap annother one...pappy!
