Is the dura-ace crank the only choice available?

Campagnolo produces the Record crank in 180, FSA makes their Carbon Pro Team Issue in 180 as well, and the too-polished-for-a-cross-bike cranks from Specialites TA (the people who make the best chainrings in the world) have a crank in 180. Dura Ace would seem to be the best choice: it is at least equal to the others in terms of performance, and is slightly better on price. You can have my old 178mm Bullseye tubular steel cranks for next to nothing, but they'll double the weight of your bike...

I think 180 a bit much for cx unless you are going SS. too much on the knees plus lost ground clearance. if you are a masher look for a 177.5. a 175 would be fine.

G, Thanks for the info. The dura-ace sounds like a winner.
