Rated 4 out of 5 by недорого не сильно тяжёлая система, хорошая каретка в комплекте, но большая звезда ощутимо пружинит(но не сгинается) при силовом педалировании. Возможно - так задумано? 06 October 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Достойное приобретение Заказал эту систему во время распродаж, в качестве ремонта предыдущей своей системы - то была FSA Vero Compact 46/36, которая не вынесла отечественных дорог, сообщив мне об этом разбитым посадочным местом в левом шатуне. Порадовало то, что шла она в комплекте с кареткой - к FSA каретку покупал отдельно, причем требовала она короткого (103 мм) вала, что в моем городе, как оказалось, довольно большая редкость. Процесс установки не вызвал затруднений, и система встала как родная, несмотря на то, что в комментариях были сообщения о том, что система не подошла к раме и цепляет перья - у меня Merida Cyclo Cross 5 2011 года, если кому интересно. Покататься, правда, толком не довелось, не говоря уже о боевом крещении железки, но за те немногочисленные километры, что все же довелось проехать, понял, что система легче, чем FSA-шная. Если не забуду - опишу ощущения после приличного километража Please, comment if you want translation 06 April 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good Basic Product I bought this for a fixed gear commuter bike that I built. So I didn't us the chainrings that came on it. I run it with a single chainring. This has been a great crank for me... Came with the bottom bracket and took me less than 5 minutes to install. I haven't had any issues with this and still running great. I have used in snow, rain, etc... It is a commuter bike after all... But I do keep my bikes indoors and in good condition. 24 March 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Doesnt fit Got it, it should fit my frame but doesn't. And apparently I can't leave a short review so here's some more text. 08 February 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Don't bother Brought these cranks as I needed to replace my inner chain ring on my cross bike and they were a bargin. Wish I hadn't wasted my time fitting them chain kept coming off when in high gears on outer chain ring. No amount of fine tuning could solve this now using my old outer ring that im glad I saved and so far so good. Shame about the masive scratches on the drive side crank arm. 28 January 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by This product will break! One week old and it is in the Bin. Do not even contemplate buying this product. After 1 week of riding the outer chainring failed. I am very surprised that CRC are still selling this product and I would strongly recommend that it is removed from sale. There is a reason that it is this price and it is not worth that. CRC were generally good with refunding the product. My advice is buy a more expensive one and save yourself the hassle of replacing it next month. 21 January 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 Good value for money Attractive crankset, reasonably lightweight and extremely keen price (£28.71 including the BB). Useful 48/34 ratios too. Attempted to fit this chainset to a bike with quite wide tyre clearance but the BB was far too narrow - strictly for skinny road bikes only! Still worth keeping hold of as I can use the rings and sell the rest. 17 January 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great quality Very smooth, easy to install, yes you are losing the 50+ big ring but as it's cheap enough to drop a new cassette on the rear and drop a cog size or two. Have really enjoyed riding out on this. 16 January 2014

Is the bottom bracket included

Hi. A reviewer has stated that the bottom bracket GXP is included. I wish to buy this in 175mm option. In the detailed options menu, it showed 175mm and had a blank space for options whereas the 172.5mm had ' no cups ' as the option.

Is the bottom bracket included with 175mm. And if not, how come one reviewer has recieved his cranks with the bottom bracket included. Cheers.

Bottom bracket included?

One week ago there was a box to say if the bb is included or not. Now there isn't any box. It is still right that only the 172.5 version does not come with a bb?

I wish to use this to replace a standard double crankset which currently has a square tapered bottom bracket (68mm). I understand that I need to replace the existing BB with the GXP one provided which is listed as 68/73. Several reviewers mention there are no spacers provided with the BB. Therefore my questions are:

1. Is this suitable to replace my old setup?
2. Do I need spacers to make up the difference between 68mm and 73mm or do I just leave a space/gap?
3. If I need spacers can you advise which to use?

even if you find a ring for BB, then you can not use it for 73mm - shaft length is not designed for that.
