  • m985 vs m980 cranks – much strength difference?
  • I’m looking for some cranks on a new build trail/AM bike and can get a deal on some M985’s. Are they likely to be much weaker than the M980’s or equivalent XT/SLX offerings?

    No different to 980s whatsoever, only difference is BCD (which is a pain if you ever want to run non-XTR rings).

    No reason to think they’ll be different from XT/SLX, unless you’re looking at older SLX with steel pedal inserts.

    I thought that would be the case. cheers

    I’m going to run a wolf tooth chain ring so should be fine.
