I know there are a lot of guys here from Europe. I was wondering if any of you have tried this crankset.

BOR 666XC - 2X - Smart Spindle System. It claims to be designed with input from Tune and is made in Germany.

MSRP is 410 Euro (not including VAT)... a little bit more expensive than Extralite. Quite a bit more than your XTR 2x10 crankset.

Thoughts? Claim is 165mm Q factor, 49mm chainline.

It basically is the same as the Smartfoot. IIRC BOR actually manufacture them and the differences are fairly cosmetic.

So pretty much anything you find regarding the Tune version is applicable to the BOR. Good if you need a removable spider and interchangeability between BBs, but because of the price, kind of pointless versus XTR or XX/XO.
