I have been building/riding my Origin-8 700CX for over a year now and I am at the final point of replacing the crankset. This is one of the few remaining parts from my Pilot which were moved over to the tour bike. It's a 105 compact crank with rings @ 50/39/30. I am interested in what everyone else has. Oh I am using a 10 speed, external bearing bottom bracket setup. The 10 speed eliminates all but a very few cranksets. I was ready to buy a T780 from a shop in England and bite the bullet on pricing/shipping. Shipped I was looking at about $330 dollars, ouch. The T-series is Shimano's trekking line which is not available here in the states. I believe it's rings were 48/36/26. How many are using MTN bike cranksets with rings @ 42/32/24? If you are what are your impressions when loaded does this size spin-out to fast? Thanks fo the help.
