          Very happy with the quality and ease of install. Keep in mind this is a 2-gear...I converted from a 3-gear and that's not compatible with my front derailleur so I decided to lock it out and use as a 1-by.

              Comments about Shimano XT M785 Crankset:

              Swapped out a 3x9 to a 2x10 40/28T drivetrain.
              Installed along with a XT M780 10 Speed Shifter Set 2/3 X 10 and a XT M785 Front Derailleur.
              Installation and set-up was a breeze.
              All necessary parts were included.
              Runs and shifts like a champ!
              Quality and finish is excellent.

                Swapped this with a Deore 3 ring crank on a Fisher Paragon. If you ride steeper/more technical trails the 40/28 chainrings might be a bit tall for a 29er with the 36t cassette. I would reccomend not exceeding the torque specs during install the hollowtech II system seems sensitive to over-torquing.

                Comments about Shimano XT M785 Crankset:

                i have a 2010 rocky mnt slayer, came with 3x9. Replaced it with this 2x10 xt crank. I used it with my existing 9speed system (didn't want to overhaul my whole xt 9speed system). after some researched , I changed front deraileur to 2x10 and used kmc 10speed chain. It works like a charmed, shifting is smooth and no more creaking from my slx crank. only down side is that i miss my bashguard. shimano did not design this crank with a bashguard in mind. only limited to one made my blackspire.

                  I was surprised this made such a big difference. The gearing is perfect on a 29er. I am running the 26/38 and the gearing couldn't be better. Easy to install.

                    Bought this Crankset because I wanted a 2x10 xt setup and it is just plain awesome. My bike came with slx/alivio 9spd and after doing the swap its night and day! It leaves me wanting to ride everyday. I also purchased the xt m780 rear derailleur, m785 front deraileleur, and m780 shifters from Jenson. Good service, 4 days to my door with std shipping.

                    I replaced my XT 3x10 crankset with the 2x10 crankset and they work great. I like the simplified drivetrain. The biggest difference for me is going from a 24 tooth granny gear to a 26 tooth. It takes a bit more effort on the steep climbs but I am quickly adjusting to it.

                      These cranks are beautiful. The silver really pops. Installation was easy and straight forward, just like other Hollow Tech II cranks by Shimano. The bearings turn smoothly. In addition, the chainrings are top notch. There are many other cheaper options out there but few better, IMO. If you want these cranks then buy em!

                      Comments about Shimano XT M785 Crankset:

                      I ride cross-country: single-track with some downhill and plenty of climbing. I switched from an OEM triple crankset on my Cannondale (House brand "CODA") with a Deore front derailleur to this Shimano 2x10 crankset and a matching XT double FD. The difference in shifting performance is almost incredible. Night and day. The backside of the large (in my case the 38t) chainring are heavily ramped and I think this is part of the reason why front shifts are so much better. Additionally, shifting between two chainrings has always been much better than on a triple. I can shift chainrings while climbing, something I was never able to do before. With the 26/38 double I find that I'm shifting in the front more than with a 22/34/44 triple. Even though this is touted as a 2x10 system, I'm running a 2x9 with a 10-speed chain with no apparent degradation in shifting performance.
