Carbon road cranks on a Surly! Armageddon is coming!
My Raceface Turbines finally bit the dust, and The FSA's were what I had on hand so...
My bottom bracket bearings were click-click-clicking, and a good amount of play had wiggled into the spindle. I either replaced the bearings or put up with that noise, noise, noise, noise!
I hate bike noise.
When I yanked the cranks, it was obvious they would bottom out the next time I put them back on. Done.
The only cranks I had were these, or a alloy pair just like them, in a nod toward juxtapositioning, I chose the carbon.
After much more dicking around, searching for bolts, measuring chainline, staring at the mess that I call a work bench than one could possibly expect changing cranks could take, viola!
They might look out of place, and I can't use smaller than a 34t chainring, but if they work, and arn't costing me any new funds, then they're perfect...and quiet.
