Race Face Deus XC cranks
« on: November 29, 2008, 08:49:39 AM »
Well, the noise just became too much. The noise being a constant crickety sound coming from my crank set when I would be riding. Too many comments from other riders finally forced me to take the bike and have it taken care of.  Sweetness got me when he said I was disrespecting the Ellsworth with all the noise. Gotta agree with that so I'm having new bearings put into my Deus X type cranks. How long have these cranks been holding up for for any others that have the same before servicing? I would approximate its been 1000 miles since I last had this done. Should last a little longer in my opinion.

Ells, the Race Face BB is WEAK!!!!!!!!!!! Change your bearing cups out to XTR and let the good times roll, you can do this yourself for less than $50 :)

Yes, I think the only oddball crank is the Truvativ. That is why you see King and and other Bling companies getting into the BB buisness. I think the King cups go for a little over $100 but you can get COLORS :o
As for what you get out of the Shimano swap, Long lasting sweetness at half the price of COLORS ;D:)
