    I run these on my SS and put rubber plugs in the small chainring holes to keep the grime out. I run the 175mm version and held up well under the extra torque of the SS.

    Pros
    Durable
    Crank arm length options

    Cons
    A bit heavy

    I've ridden this for 3 seasons now and still love it. I haven't had any problems whatsoever. I upgraded my low-end MTB with this and it was like riding a brand new bike.

    Pros
    Light, good price, tough

    Cons
    none yet

    Not the cheapest option for lower end cranksets but a durable performer. Clost to the XT crankset with a little added weight and less durable chainrings.

    Pros
    Cheap crankset for the weight and stiffness. Crank arms take a beating without showing too many cosmetic flaws.

    Cons
    Chain rings wear out somewhat quickly. Outer chainring can be bent easily on rock and log strikes.

    For weight that comes close to XT but doesn't break the bank great crank for the price.

    Pros
    Really light for the price. Competitor's cranks don't even come close to the weight for the same price.

    This is the pre-cursor to SLX at half the price. Awesome value. If you are not worried about race weight then this is the crankset for you!

    Pros
    Price is amazing, great bang for buck! Including BB at less than 990g.

    Cons
    Nothing

    The performance level of the LX model is leaps and bounds above the stock deore line. LX is light and shifts well. Overall a great buy.

    Pros
    Great Value!! Light.

    Cons
    Teeth have chipped, in 4 seasons of use.
