Solid product
Good product, but weight would be an issue if these weren't only for a commute bike. Replacing old LX aluminum cranks and the Alivio are noticeably heavier. I might try and remove the outer chain guard to reduce weight - it seems this can come off with just a few phillips head screws.

Had a bit of fun installing when I didn't remove a plastic shipping clip on the smaller chainring and wondered why the spindle appeared to be too short :-)

PROS: Durable, Easy To Install

CONS: Heavy

Finally!!!
Finally a touring or recreational gearing crank. This 26-36-48 is the perfect gearing for almost every recreational cyclist. The race gearing we have been forced to buy with 42-52's are ridiculous for anyone other than a racer.

Strong and dependable construction, has not failed in the 5 years I have been using Alivio cranks.

Too bad the 8 speed square taper is now obsolete. We are now forced to buy 9 speed with Octolink bottom bracket.

PROS: Perfect Gear Ratio, Attractive Design, Square Taper, 8 Speed, Easy To Install, Durable

CONS: New Ones Use Ocolink Bb, New Ones Are 9 Speed

BEST USES: Road Biking, Casual Riding, Upgrade, Mountain Biking

Good solid crank for mountain and road
This has been my go-to crank for mountain and road touring. The 26-36-48 is perfect gearing for touring the flats and mountains of California. The 22-32-42 gearing is the common gearing for mountain biking, which is available. After 6 years of using this crank, it has proven itself with my intense training, touring, and commuting. Unfortunately the 8 speed is being phased out in favor of the 9 speed. Also the square taper UN55 bottom bracket interface (another strong dependable part) is going to the octolink.

PROS: Various Arm Lenghs, Easy To Install, Attractive Design, Durable, Great Gearing Choice

CONS: 8 Speed Discontinued

BEST USES: Upgrade, Mountain Biking, Casual Riding, Road Biking

Solid 3-ring replacement
Needed a solid replacement for an older crank that I could not get new chain rings. This was a great alternative. Waiting for the weather to break to put it to the test.

Great value
Building up a touring bike and desired a low-cost crankset in the 48-38-28 size which is getting harder to find. Nice quality for the price and works well with the suggested BB. Left side crank sticks out a little farther than I'd like and Alivio MTB front derailleur does work as it is spaced to far out to align with the 28 chainring. Have ordered a Sora 3x9 front derailleur hoping it will work.

PROS: Inexpensive, Durable, Easy To Install
