Default shimano deore vs shimano xt? question


"Small Black Dog" skrev i en meddelelse
...
have a deore crank on my bike, its only a few months old. i got an xt

crank
for about $80.00. is it worth the upgrade. i smashed my truvativ and
replaces with deore which seems heavier.
thus is it worth the $$$ to upgrade to the xt

thanks


Upgrade to the XT. Deore cranks are relatively heavy compared to the XT

and
the XT is stiffer.


I would go for RF Prodigy, it same price as the XT, but you dont have to use
Shimanos stinky Bottom Brackets. There is a lot of nice ISIS BBs out there
:-) And yes, its worth the upgrade.

Also put it like this: would you ride a crapped up Lada when you have an
Aston Martin Vanquish sitting in your garage?


Depends on gas prices?

I think he's allready bought the XT crank though.

if you can afford a Vanquish you can afford the petrol, i hope.

Ride the Deore until it's thrashed, then put on the XT.

Or, ride the XT until it's thrashed, then you have a spare crankset so
you're not out any cash.
