Truvativ crankarm/spider question

Found a great deal on a pair of Truvativ Crankarms, no spider. Where can I get one? OR will my stock specialized strongarm spider work?

If you're referring to the Roleur ones on DC CL today, You'll need to get them from Truvativ. Not worth it. By the time you got the spider and chainrings it exceeds the cost of the crank

You might be able to use your current rings provided the BCD is correct, but the spider is exclusive to that crank. I have a Gossamer compact here for a new BMC build, I looked long and hard at that one :-)

Prolly the same reason it's still there... were it easy that one would be *gone* LOL

Haha, I don't know that it is the same. So I think I'm not gonna go for it.. especially since my chain slipped yesterday and literally took of a chunk of my drive train side crank arm.. if that had been carbon...
