Overall Review:

You might be surprised how much you like this crankset. I know I was. SRAM has put together a simple package that opens up a ton of options. Stick to the original rings or convert it to a double with bash or even a 1x setup by removing the spider and going with something like the MRP bling ring. A future proof crankset? Who knows...

Carbon may have the cool factor going but these aluminum arms aren't too far behind in the weight department and will save you some hard-earned cash for other bike upgrades.

This crankset has stood up to some friendly abuse this season and so far is my favorite purchase this year. Poking around online will yield some good deals on these or the truvativ aka, which is essentially the same crankset.
