Looks at the TruVativ line; now owned by SRAM; good stuff, but not pricey at all.

ok now let me ask this ...
I have heard if you are using 10 sp dura-ace rear and front dreillrue ...then only shimano cranks will work the best. Is anyone using 10SPD dura - ace with a crankset that is not shimano....
Any thoughts?

Nah its a myth. I would argue that yes, in general, Shimano or Campy cranks work better than any other crank. However, its not an issue of compatibility or anything. Many bikes come equipped with Truvative/FSA cranks and Shimano 10spd drivetrains. It works. My current is 10spd 105 with Truvativ cranks. Not as smooth as a Shimano crank but it does the job pretty well.

I have a Shimano 10 sp with a TruVativ crank. That's how the Giant OCR2s come equipped. No problems.
