I may not always be right...but I am NEVER wrong.

Dear Internet,

I am putting together a new cross bike. It will be comprised of a blend of totally kickass old parts and new parts. I am trying to decide which fucking awesome low Q mountain cranks to run 2x9. I would appreciate (or, as the Rastafarian in I would say: appreshilove...Yes I. bo! bo! ) any input you, the Internet have to offer on this monumental decision.

No thanks on carbon fibre. It is not awesome.

Thank you in advance for your consideration,

Ithe undersigned.

velo orange has a nice sugino xd700 48-34 double. my road, cross, and mt sport suginos. I likey. lots.

obviously, this in an effort to match my forthcoming CX/off road all round build effort.

I've been looking for the same features in a crankset...the Alpina and xd700 48-34 are good choices and FSA gossamer 46/36 cransets that take a isis BB are avialable from $70-99 around the net/on ebay.

Of course you are going to have the face the fact that no matter which cranks you choose they will pale in comparison to the swesomeness of my cranks, just because they are mine.

LJ-busted. Your cranks are the awesomest.

Has the rest of the Internet not got an opinion? I knew this whole computerized network thing was a bullshit fad.

Just so people know...the new XTR are like $700US. What the HELL?!?!

Get some old 952 arms and a Dura Ace BB. Booyakasha.

I'd go with the xtr then. 7x better than that sugino shite. and what better way to show your commitment to cycling.
