Crankset compability Suntour/Shimano
After I changed pedals on my GT Traffic, the right pedal detached on a ride, nothing to do, the threads were gone. Long ride home..
I hoped I could change only the crankarm, but I'm beeing told by the shop where I got it that I need the whole set new.
The crankset is Sr Suntour NRX 48/38/28
with 8-speeds in the back. PDF on the GT Traffic
I'm ordering some other parts from a store here in Norway, and wonder if I can use this instead: Shimano FC-171 Kranksett Sølv, 170 mm, 48/38/28, Firkantaksling - Bikeshop.no
The SR Suntour set is not available from this store (only the MTB version with 42/32/22). I Have asked the store on mail (called first), but they answered only another question regarding a roadbike.
The only difference between these two seems to be 175 (Suntour) vs. 170mm (Shimano) on the length of the arm (is there a noticable difference really?)
Thanks in advance for any light shed on this,
