I just got a Trek Boone frame and I'm going for a Dura Ace 9000 crank.
Besides the 50/34 native chainrings, I was wondering whether there are options for a 46/36 setup
Do you know any aftermarket chainring set ?

I would also consider other standard cranksets as long as they work with the BB90, but not sure what options I have

Thanks

You could source an Ultegra 46T ring. That is what the pros are on anyhow, just with a different finish.

Or just get the Ultegra crankset. They are quite affordable and are very nice.

You won't be disappointed. They shifting is amazing between the rings and it looks really nice. A bonus is, with the new BB design an Ultegra 6800 crank is within a few grams of a DA7900 crankset/old BB.

Looks awesome! If you don't mind me asking, how much was the crank? I'm looking for one on eBay, but haven't found a good deal, and I don't want to go with the CX170 cranks, either.

Not bad. I'm trying to build a Crockett using leftover parts on a $1200 budget (including frame), so I'm trying to save as much as possible.
