I'm upgradiing my cranks from Sugino to Truvativ. I bend 2 rings in a crash and now need new cranks. I have a 04 GT Avalanche 2.0 and noticed all the 05 and newer bikes mostly use Truvativ Cranksets. I plan on getting a new bike at the end of the summer or wait to next spring.I'm looking at a Specialized Stumpjumper FSR comp. Killer bike and I really like the full suspension. It also comes with Truvativ cranks but the Stylo external bearings. They are very sweet.
So After a few conversations with some bike techs, they all agree the Blaze 175mm with a ISIS bottom bearing is the way to go on my current bike. What do you guys think about that upgrade and Truvativ cranks in general? I do mostly XC type riding, nothing hard or abusive to the bike or myself. I'm 36 years old and like to ride about 10 to 20 miles per ride. Alot of good local trials that are up and down hill, lots of twists and turns and plenty of fun. I also do a canal trial for a 20 + mile burn thats flat.
Thanks upfront for some comments
