Was out riding today and decided that singlespeed wasn't quite challenging enough, so removed a pedal from my crank and took the route home single-pedal on a singlespeed. How very hardcore!
Well, that's my pub story. What had happened is that I must not have secured my pedal on the crank and it worked itself loose and ripped out the threads on the way out.
The SLX crank pedal hole is baby smooth on the inside and too wide to be tapped, the pedal is absolutely fine.
So, I've been using an SLX crank with the chain rings removed and replaced with a 34T Renthal. This has been fine but now, obviously, I need to replace things.
I could just go for another SLX set and bin the chain rings, but rather than spend that money I should look at buying SS specific cranks. But I don't know what to go for. THere are various sets out there with all kinds of specifications, different sizes, some with or without spiders for the chain ring.
What are my options and what might you recommend?
I want something that will be a plug in replacement for SLX and ready to go. Chain ring or bash guard not required.
