    All of them have issues. Which issue do you most want to deal with?

    RD2 are pretty low quality and really long.

    GLP are okay quality wise, would need new chainring bolts and new BB(or at least a new axle)

    Super mighty are way too long, and will have to do lots of work to figure out the right BB, and will most likely have to run the ring on the inside.

    Unnamed-it is low quality(rd2s) and youre going to be paying for an adaptor you wont need. The BB is questionable if it will fit your frame or not.

    If I ever get stuck on an island, I want there to be avocados and mangos. I could gladly live on those two things for the rest of my life.

    Dude I hate avocados.... One of the very very few things I can't really stomach.
    That, and cottage cheese.

    If you ever want a killer (and extremely simple) recipe for pineapple salsa, hit me up in the 'Ask Scrod' thread.

    Morgan - cottage cheese just sucks.

    How did y'all go from cranksets to food? LMAO! I am thinking of buying a Sugino crank arm set and then a Surly 42t chainring.

    Sugino RD2 is fine. Don't let the crankset snobs sway you.

    Agreed. The RD-2 is a fine crankset.

    I think you mean bananas and mangoes. I don't know if avocados have enough nutrients, does anyone know? I crave cados sometimes, but then I get sick of them pretty quickly.

    To me, there is NOTHING like a ripe summer white peach. Mangoes are up there, but so are crispy persimmons and asian pears.

    Avocados are packed full of awesome stuff. Too bad they are disgusting.
