..... For my Saracen tufftrax elite commuter/tow path kid carrier?

I have both so no searching required but I can't decide. The build is mainly xt m737 with the exception of xt m732 thumbies. Accessories are all silver as are both crank options.

Bb fitted is 122 wide so fits the xt cranks, not sure what size I need for the burns.

This is the last decision I need to make on the build before taking the wheels in to be sorted and then fitting the cables, mud guards, rack and kids seat.

Help me decide.

Pics to follow.

It's true, the burns are terrible. I think I should simply smelt them and make them into something more palletable.

Once I have a few other builds sorted, a set f burns will be available, but not before.

So back to the question at hand......

Middleburns are a bit 'bling' for a workhorse bike, fit the hum drum, common all garden Shimano stuff :wink:
