      Almost identical to my Deore triple crank, but is limited to one chain ring. The crank also came with an upgraded bb52, rather than the bb51 that came with me Deore crank.

            Convert my Anthem X to 1x10, with 11/36 cog and medium rear mech with clutch. Zee crank was perfect, not to much pricy, it was on the budget, chain line was great, no more noise things every time I pedal, and you gonna feel the stiffness of the crank every time you pedal it(specially on uphill).

              I have one on my Kona Stinky TL and it's absolutely awesome. Great price and looks great when the son catches the little gold sparkly things in the paint.

              This is a very nice crankset for the price. It is very durable and performs great. The crank arms are more of a brownish black color, which may not match quite as nice as jet black arms, but who cares anyway. I just mention that because I noticed it (and some people may care). I have not had any issues with this crankset. I am very happy with my purchase.

                Fits bottom bracket on my old 95 Specialized Rockhopper. Used it to convert bike to single speed. Make sure to use the supplied spacers (large rings) to size to 68 or 73 mm bottom bracket. Wish the 36T chainring a bit nicer, but does the job.

                Hollow tube on crank axle should come with end caps to keep dirt out. But open ends does not expose bearings or critical components. More of a cosmetic thing.

                  Installed on my Specialized Hardrock 29er. Easy to setup and is a great upgrade from the stock three-ring crank. Came with a 36T ring which is perfect for me because I don't have TOO many steep climbs in my local park.

                  I ride a 2010 GT Avalanche on singletrack and the stock square taper cranks were worn out and were in need of replacing. I went with these nicely priced DH cranks for a solid upgrade. They have a very stiff and responsive feel to them and were very easy to install. They have shaken off a couple impacts to the arms and can take a whole lot more. The BB is holding up pretty good so far, but I haven't had them long enough to have a long-term opinion on them. I ride an average of 50-75mi a week (10-15mi per day). Definitely a good buy!

                    I needed to replace a broken crank on my Transition Double but didn't really want to drop down a ton of $$$.

                    This was the perfect replacement and upgrade! Price was perfect and installation is quick and easy.

                    Not really sure why it's listed as a 10 speed only crank. Maybe the teeth spacing on the chain ring? Didn't really matter since I wasn't planning to use the chain ring that came with it.

                    Purchased the Zee Crankset for my Bottlerocket bike build as a more "budget minded" setup. I also run the Saints on my Blindside and was very happy to see the quality of the Zee's, especially for the price paid.
