    That is a fantastic price for the XTR crankset. Had I the money for that kind of bling, I'd have ordered them myself, but I just ordered some XT M770 cranks from them for $145 and some change, USD. Who cares if they come in a standard retail box or wrapped in a potato sack; it's a great deal.

    No worry's mate. I've ordered from them a few times, and have had zero problems.

    Damn! I ordered from them too. $356 at the time. This is a smoking deal. You won't get the pretty XTR box with it, but what are you going to do with the box?


    I'm tempted to buy another just because I love deals.

    I had to talk myself out of it too, I already have two sets. When I ordered from them, I paid $320 a few months ago and it came in the retail box. Go figure.

    With the current live.com 30% ebay promotion and the stackable ebay 10% off coupon you can get XTR cranks for $250 shipped.

    I like wiggle.co.uk similar prices to Chainreaction on Shimano stuff, but all comes in OEM boxes.

    It's been talked about a lot on the deal sites. Check out http://forums.slickdeals.net/showthr...uid=0&t=952519

    The basics are
    - search on http://www.live.com for your item
    - Click on the banner on the top of the page that mentions 30% cashback at eBay.
    - If you don't see the cashback logo on the eBay results page, try the search at live.com again
    - You have an hour to complete a buy-it-now transaction thru PayPal.
    - You get 30% deposited in your Live.com cashback which can be transfered to PayPal in 60 days.

    Yep

    Who's eligible?
    Only invited, registered eBay users who receive the coupon by email from us or see the coupon in My eBay are eligible. Sorry, no forwarding—the coupon is not transferable

    Yep it worked for me. Whats weird w/ my cookies cleared the 10% coupon was advertised on ebays main page. When I signed in it went away since I already used it. Your mileage may vary but I'm semi-certain that the coupon will work for all ebay users. Worst case scenario you ONLY get 30% off instead of 40%.

    It did not work for me. It said that the coupon is linked to another paypal account.

    May be we should really wait until these are discounted even more at CR or elsewhere. You can get a new bike for a price of one of these.

    Crankset is at $282 at CRC today. I'm tempted to pick one up as a spare. I paid $360 a year ago and I was getting a steal at the time.

    Sorry - please ignore that post - I was going to www.chainreaction.com which is a local bike shop and clearly that was the wrong place!
