    new botton bracket and crank

    ok i just cracked my bottom bracket and messed up my cranks really bad. of course my bike is a surly and more specifically the instigator. now that i messed those up i need to find a BB and crank combo that works for a 73mm wide english threaded bottom bracket, any ideas?

    Good job!

    Truvativ, Race-Face, Shimano.

    I've been thinking of trying out Hone outboard style, gotta find the right customer who's not afraid to spend a littlt more. Up 'til now, I've been putting on Truvativ Hussefelt's and Team D/H isis bb/cranks with no warranty issues at all.

    I can't remember what kit you've been running off the top of my head, but visit the D/H Forum and see what's been working for the peeps.

    i went up to the LBS and he suggested shimano xt crankarms and bb. theyre the new x-type so i figured theyd last longer then my old octalink setup, so i went ahead and got them ordered up. my instigator will be up again on saturday

    little late to ask, but how are the xt's for trail use and a little jumping (6 foot drop at max)

    XT's really arent designed for jumping so be forewarned...more og a hone or saint thing if you are shimano-loyal. Personally Im a Race Face guy, but if jumping is your thing, you cant beat profile or diety cranks

    the XTs will be fine. light, stiff, strong. Hone isn't much different from LX. Of course, Saints are great for dh and huge drops, but with a significant weight penalty for trail riding.

    i got them a while ago and hhave been using them. they are light and stiff, but the stock chainrings suck. they slip so much. i already have really knocked my ankle on my pedals pretty hard (pain) i think theyll be replaced in a week or so.
