RaceFace Ride XC Single Speed Crankset Black w/ Bash
RIDE offers the Race Face performance and craftsmanship the brand is known for, at an attractive price point. With laser etched Race Face signature styling and the EXI interface external bottom bracket system for easier installation and removal, RIDE brings the RF bling and functionality with-out the price tag.
This crank replaced the stock one on my marin bobcat trail. I never used anything but the middle ring and i wanted to make the switch to 1x9. This is a fantastic crank! Its easy to install and functions flawlessly. Huge improvement over stock. Plus it comes with RaceFace's Narrow Wide chainring already installed!!
I replaced the crank on my 06 4300 Trek since I only use the center ring anyway and I wanted to have a bash guard also. It is an excellent quality product that installed easily. I would recommend having the proper tools to remove the old crank and install the new one.
I put this crank on my Kona Scrap and its been a much lighter and more durable design then my previous TRUVATIV ISIS which had been repeatedly coming loose while riding. Only con is I wish it had steel reinforced threads for the pedals.
