Thanks for that, I believe I have a set of RS3s and RS7s so the 122 bb in situ wins I think, as its smooth so no need to remove.

Thanks!

Pics now up if it helps anyone sway me from most likely going with the M730 XT cranks.

Agree 730's look better they will also give you a much better chain line. RS3's on a 122 BB will be a horrid chain line.

The RS3's might look better with a polish though ;)

If I were to use the middleburns I would change the bb and give them a polish, the m730s would also be the lucky beneficiary of a polish before the cranks bolts are nipped tight.
