New Deore Cranks

I have been shopping around for a crank up grade and I have found the New Deores that are a 2 piece design Kinda like the high end stuff....for under $100.....even if they are not the Best would they be better than my current shimano cranks.

Well that all depends on what you currently have.

Are you having problems with yours?

If they ain't broke, don't fix 'em...but LX is only $99

Oh...I think the Hollowtech II design crankset is one of the best MTB innovations since the "Banana Hammock" saddle.
