Noticed Rivendell is selling a wide range compact crank from Sugino XD for 140. It's a 26-40t. Anyone with any experience with a double in this range? I'm building up a secondary bike that'll be for commuting/touring/light off road use. I use a 30/46 on my primary bike and like it for roads, but want a smaller granny for offroad hills.
Also, is 140 a good price? Could I buy the crankset and a cog and assemble it myself for cheaper?
