    New Crankset

    I'm in the market to upgrade my crankset and I've been going back and forth between the Shimano XT hollowtec and the Race Face LP turbine. Basically wanted to see what everyone else is riding and if anyone has any recommendations.

    Thanks, Tim
    Some people are like Slinkies . . . not really good for anything, but

    I have the XT's on one of my bikes and have had no problems with them. I have done some good size drops and jumps and they do not flex too much. I have never run the R.F. LP Turbuines so I can not give any input on those.

    I run the RF LP Turbines, very stiff.
