Crankset(1 post)

Jul 8, 2003 4:56 PM
I know this forum is for road bikes, but since I use my mountain bike on the road, I am asking the following.
I was just given an XTR crank. Upon installing it, I noticed that the crank arms were quite a bit further out than the previous crankset. The bottom bracket fits nice and snug. Does this mean that I have used the proper width. It is an 8 speed crank with a square taper. Also, is there anyway that I can use an 8 speek crank with a 9 speed drivetrain.
