        Comments about Shimano CX50 Cyclocross Crankset:

        The product description indicated the bottom bracket was not included, but when I began installing it, it seemed like every paragraph in the installation instructions mentioned another part or "special tool" necessary to install this crankset. After several contacts with Jenson, (they were courteous, tried to help) I gave up, and sent it back. Unless you have some pretty specialized tools and expertise, I wouldn't consider this a do-it-yourself job. I later bought one thru at a bike shop and spent a bundle having them do the installation.

          Comments about Shimano CX50 Cyclocross Crankset:

          I went from a 50/34 compact double to the 46/36 gearing of this crankset, and I love it. The gearing is much more useful for cyclocross, where you just don't need a 50 toother. Probably don't need a 46t, either, but for road rides and gravel centuries, the top end speed comes in handy. In short, I prefer the gearing of this crankset. Top it off with a CX70 top pull front derailleur if you've got top tube cable routing. Best upgrade you can give yourself.

                Good crank for an all round crank, replaced the inner 36t for a 34t, going to use it for a cyclocross bike, on & off road.

                  Nice looking crankset. Works well so far with the CX70 front derailleur. So far, so good after a few races and some commuting.
