Not at all, ned. I also have another set of cranks with no chainrings which I used with gears.
Deore triple 48/36/26 on the HT 29er
Deore double 36/22 on the FS
5 bolt Race Face turbines - 44/32/22 usual proper mtb bike

all bought cheap through opportunity rather than choice.

Raceface turbine - single
Raceface atlas 100mm - single
Alfine - single
Sugino messenger , single
Truativ touro - 32-42-52
How ever i reckon if you made sure it fitted saints , xt and atlas you wouldnt go far wrong.
XT M760 run as 22, 32, bash - will probably go to 22, 36, bash - run 9 speed
XT M780 run as 24, 32, bash - run 10 speed
xt ht2 175 triple on everything, one with 3, one with 1, one with 2+bash
aracer: belt drive rings? prop shaft? unicycle?
Shimano SLX with 1x9, 34t chainring. If I want to use it as a double I'll have to find some way of removing the stuck chainring bolt. The newer torx fitting bolts seem to be made of cheese and managed to strip completely so had to hacksaw the head off to remove the granny. Far from ideal.
Race Face Atlas 22-32-44 on both my bikes, i likes them alot.
Shimano SLX 22-32-44 on the girlfriends.
SRAM X9 - 2 rings
Deore - 3 rings
XTR Mk1 HT - 3 Rings
XT (circa 1992) - 3 rings
White Industries - 3 rings
Bontrager Satellite Nebula - 1 ring (Gates Belt Drive)
LX triple on the MTB (on its last legs though)
105 compact double on the road bike
Alfine 45t single on the commmuter.
Thanks very much for the great response everyone.
Here is a summary of the info so far:
2 more slx double n bash here, one
Shimano SLX with massively filed down chainring tabs to fit myshaman racing bash. Judging by the number of saint and slx cranks on pinkbike with filed granny tabs, this would be something to improve on. May be also worth considering what cranks tend to be used by riders who require chain devices.
RF Deuce XC (standard triple)
Is this the most boring thread ever?
SLX triple converted to a double, 24/34 rings.
Xt double and single(conversion from triples)
SLX with a triple
Shimano Slx with a single renthal ring
XT M770 as a double
XT M760 as a triple
