What cranksets are you riding? That's the only part I'm lacking in my build, and having a hard time sourcing something at a reasonable price. Considering FSA or something else with TA rings. What works? What doesn't? What are you using?

Love that X-Night gorgeous.

You can tell it's a regular 135mm crank b/c of how long the spider arms are compared to the rings. I think it looks a lot better and it's also better for mud clearance most likely.

On my 2 CX bikes I run 130mm Shimano cranks with 38 and 39 teeth rings.

Thanks, the X-Night is a superb bike.

I just converted it to Record for this season, before that it was on Dura Ace with the 7800 46t ring, I also have the 47 in case someone could be interested
