ISO: Square Taper MTB Crankset
« on: Apr 05, 17, 09:59 »
Looking for a cool old square taper crank set.

If I can find a left crank arm for a Race Face square taper in silver, or an entire crank set with rings it would be ideal.

Looking for something cool like Raceface, FSA, XT, LX, Deore, Etc.  including rings if possible, don't have to be in pristine condition, just useable on an 8spd ride.

something a little nice to go on a nice old retro 1997 Cannondale.

Price range up to $50, since they are usually tossed out by now. 

Also interested in a low riser handlebar, 26mm and a set of shifters for 8spd.

Please send me a PM if you have something, I've tapped out Pinkbike and Craigslist.

cool items, but both are Road sets, I'm looking specifically for Mountain.  I knackered my CODA one piece machined ones removing them from the bike.

Have you checked out Jenson USA? I have had parts shipped from them and they have 'all in' shipping and have been really great to deal with over the years.

They have a few square taper cranksets that aren't the best quality but would get you back riding while you search around. This one is $15 http://www.jensonusa.com/Cranksets/Shimano-Altus-M311-78SPD-Square-Crankst?cs=Black.

Also, way to much dollars but check these out http://www.ebay.ca/itm/NOS-Race-Face-Turbine-DH-Crankset-retro-vintage-/192132961812?hash=item2cbc045614:g:dcsAAOSwCU1YpPGS

It's not so much about "getting back out riding" I've got 4 other bikes for doing that, this is just a vintage project I'm working on to use for vintage race nights or to ride an ultra light hand made frame when I don't want to ride the dually

this is what's on the bike now but I damaged it removing it, had I known they are selling for a hundred bucks I'd have been much more careful!!!

Holy shit. Is 150mm-160mm cranks the norm for mountain bikes?

No, 170-180 are standard.

how'd you mess them up?  was going to say this is what should be on an old Caad 2/3/4 frame.

Same. Although my rain bike has 172.5. But only cause it's old square taper too. And I can't be bothered to look for 175mm. But I'm talking road bikes.

the square taper puller pulled the threads out of the drive side arm, then while I was "massaging" it off the BB it ended up with a few broken teeth along with there being none on the granny ring.  It also had a miss matched non drive side arm that doesn't match the CODA crank.  I found a nice Kona drive side arm but can't locate the non drive side lol
