    AKA Crankset
    Hi
    Does anyone know if all or any of the AKA crankset (2.1 and 3.3) has a removable spider? I currently have the 1.1 and was able to remove the spider.
    Thanks

    I am looking at buying a set of AKA cranks in order to run a 28T bling ring (or similar) and chain reaction cycles has a good price on them (Truvativ AKA Chainset GXP 1.1G | Buy Online | ChainReactionCycles.com) so I emailed chain reaction to confirm that the AKA's had a removable spider and this is the response I received today.

    "...the 'Truvativ AKA Crankset' wouldn't have a removable spider." Are they wrong? Do all the AKA cranks have a removable spider?

    YUP! they are wrong. I have the 1.1 and 2.2 and they both have removable spiders.

    Is that bling ring only compatible with 10 speeds? And did the chain ever jump to the outside?
