Affordable crankset with 36 inner ring?(9 posts)

Affordable crankset with 36 inner ring?desmo
Dec 3, 2003 4:07 PM
Looking for a double crankset I can run a 36 inner ring but still use a 48 or 50 outer. LBS told me about a carbon FSA, but I really don't want to spend the bucks on that right now. Any leads would be appreciated.

Most any moutain bike crankset would work, i run a race face Turbine with a road ISIS bottom bracket standard BCD (110mm). It's pretty sweet.

I've also heard that Ritchey will be introducing their version of a compact crankset sometime soon. Price unknown, but said to be compatible with Shimano Octalink BB. Stronglights are square taper (if that matters to you).

The rep i talked to said the 110 WCS compact crankset will retail for $159. The weights the same as a Ultegra double. I saving my nuggets.

Did the rep say when the crankset is going to come out?

TA and Stronglight make them, available at peterwhitecyles.
Ritchey used to make them, NOS at Rivendell.

Or you could buy a mountain triple 110/74 and take off the granny ring, I've used this setup. There are some inexpensive quality forged cranks available out there $50 on up.

These are all square taper. Depending on bike and chainstay length, bottom bracket width may vary, 1 and 2 mm shims are available to fine tune the drive side.
