    purchasing cranks. help.

    hello guys,

    i'm about to order these saint cranks from jenson:

    http://www.jensonusa.com/store/produ...%2BTriple.aspx

    the thing is, before i purchase something, i always like to make one last final check to make sure it will be okay.

    i have a trek bruiser 1, stock. will this crankset be fine? is 175 mm okay?

    is there anything else i should make sure of or double check before i order?

    thanks for the help.

    It should be fine. Just make sure to chase the BB shell threads.

    To get the paint/powdercoat out of there if there is any. External bearing cups need to go in straight. Any crookedness will create load issues and premature wear.
