Same spline but not the same fit. A XT left crank is not compatible with a XTR spindle, for example.



EDIT: I talked to Stages, XTR has a different spline depth, but XT and below should be...

Shimano MTB left crank arm compatibility

So I have a M780/M785 left crank arm (Stages). I want to be able to use it with an old beater bike, and wondering what other old Shimano Deore/SLX/XT level cranksets will be compatible? Not looking...

If you're used to handling on the racier road frames and prefer that riding style you're probably fine with a CX bike. I bought my CX bikes for gravel, commuting and CX racing and rarely run anything...

I wouldn't go with a Roadhouse for tire clearance reasons anyway (30mm tires, up to maybe 35mm max in the rear), it's more like the Salsa Colossal. (Renegades do have Shimano hydros - but yeah only...

Partial road set up... just a different front wheel/tire. Gearing is too low for real road use though.

Heard about this one - it's cool but another moving piece to worry about maintaining (albeit a simple one). Using an old-fashioned double/triple without needing a clutch gives you tons of options.

Pretty sure I've had the rear shift cable replaced at least once on the Jake in it's lifetime. Probably the front shift cable too. The rear brake cable has definitely been replaced (started getting...

I tend to agree, I have 2 Capreo hubs as well but would probably prefer dual drive from what I've read, and you get to use regular cassettes.



Very nice! x2

Zombie thread I know, but I finally got around to switching it! I just bought an adapter an ebay and it fit fine... I have 4300+ miles on the Jake now. Will test ride it later today probably.

FWIW...

Yeah agreed that's a bit unbelievable. I've also blown off tires not much higher than max pressure, although it depends a lot on the rim (not just the tire).

Huh, interesting. I have the same bike and it's also the first time I've had thru axles (excepting my MTB, which I don't ride as much).

I was curious about this too because every time I remove the...

I have one in 17t but only did a few miles on it before I went to fixed. My others are all WI freewheels, it didn't seem as smooth as those, but low miles = tough to really tell.

On hilly rides with lots of descending I prefer having both brakes on a fixed gear. Obviously your legs are still spinning but they don't have to apply any forward or backward pressure really.

The only issues (other than if the dropouts aren't long enough for all the options) might be the tire clearance for the 22/34 and the rear brake position might need fiddling which would be pretty...

I run a 28mm Clement Strada LGG on my FG these days. I also got rid of most of my Gatorskins - just hate their feel and grip in the wet.

46/17 sounds about right to me although it depends a little on the tire size. If you're running 29ers with studs maybe 44/17 would be better.



Gear inches don't account for crank length.
