Middleburn X-type crank experiences.
I have some, I think they were probably one of the first they produced as I had to wait some time for them (through LBS not far from the factory). I really like them and have had no issues whatsoever, other than thinking I’d have to cut them off when changing frames but it turned out I was trying to undo them on the wrong side 🙂 Very embarrassing trip to the LBS that one!Posted 3 years agoAidanMember
I have a wide set of X-Types with a Hope BB on my fat bike.
Much nicer to fit than the Surly fat cranks (fewer random bolts + washers). They weigh less, and look about a million times better.
I used them in the Iditarod and had no issues for 1000 miles. After the 1000 miles, I had to take them off again to fly back from the finish line and I did that in the airport with no trouble whatsoever.

Just bought a 4 arm Middleburn spider from Activesport with no problems – delivery was about 3-4 days but that is what they quoted so no complaints. Sheer amount of stuff listed almost looks like Middleburn have made them their main stockist – maybe worth a ‘phone call first?Posted 3 years agopaul_mSubscriber
I got mine from activesport – I needed them in a rush, so phoned them up. They built them within the hour and shipped them the same day – obviously it was all built from what they had in stock.
Have since ordered some different spiders from them and that arrived within a few days as well.
I love the fact that when I went 1 x 10 I just ordered a new spider, I have now gone 1 x 11 and again I could just order a new spider if I wanted to use SRAM chainrings.Posted 3 years agofroodMember
yup, got them on my Fireline, were previously on my trek superfly al. Love them, stiff, adaptable previously had them as a 2x setup, now on a single ring setup, lovely to install, the pretension lockring makes things nice and simple.
And … lifetime warranty… had a friend whose square taper ones broke after over 10 years on various bikes including DH and polo rigs… they asked for a photo and dispatched a new set the next day. Awesome service, great cranks!
Also got mine from activesport, no troubles with the service therePosted 3 years ago
