Truvativ Sram Crank X5 Gxp 9 Sp

Be the first to review this item
Price: £39.04 - £223.26

Strange pricing. At £40 it's ok but I'd get a Deore. At close on £100 it's a joke. No idea what the £223 is, but someone was on drugs I think.

Not bad for £39.00 ......2x10 version is well rated at just over £ 100.

So why are you asking?

Selling them?

GXP bottom brackets are crap. Even the high end ones are poorly sealed.
Shimano Deore cranks are excellent and only £10 more.

Are the Hope ones compatable with GXP?

Second that. Mine died after 5 months from water ingress leading to a rusted and seized bearing after a few weeks of no,usemwhile iwas overseas. I don't own a high pressure washer so it's never seen one plus its been a super dry summer here in Denmark.

The only plus is that they seem to be user serviceable.
