I need to locate a 6 speed compatible crank 175mm with the capability of 53 39 chain rings.

where could I find one and what would I be looking at for price.

Though you MAY have some issues with 9S or 10S cranks, which have slightly closer spacing between the chain ring center lines. However, if you just run a 9S chain with your setup, I would think that any crank would work. It's not like the chain will drop between the freewheel cogs!

Yeah, Sram says their 8 speed schains work on 8,7 and 6 speed.And, they also work fine on 9 speed cranks.
