Does anyone know which group you can run 94BCD cranks with 44/28 gearing?
Is this old 2x9 MTB technology?

Any group? Old standard that came with 29/44 mostly. Got a Hollowgram spider with a set of rings in that size too :)

Thanks. Well I won the cranks as they come with the 130BCD spider as well.
I have a Lightning 110BCD spider and will most likely sell the 94BCD and rings.
Just trying to see what market there is for that BCD and Fiber Lyte rings.
44/28 seems way overkill for what I ride. haha

There were quite a few cranks with this BCD. From memory Tune, Storck, Cannondale, T/A and plenty of others all offered double cranks with this bolt pattern but it's not seen on many new cranks.

The BCD seemed to be more suited to 26" XC bikes.

You could run a road FD with them quite successfully and have a much lighter setup than regular triples and MTB FD's.

These days most riders probably don't want or need rings that big with the larger diameter wheels/tyres.
