Turns out I was confusing my M numbers. Cranks are m737, 8 speed XT. M900 XTR should fit ok. Slightly dull but practical I guess :)

should fit but not granted. it really depends on the spindle length then. M737 ideally have a 106mm spindle because they have the smaller chainrings. the M900 cranks with 46-36-26t just fit on a 106mm spindle but i had to move the spindle a bit to the drive side for chain ring clearance. 48t big ring would be very tight. but maybe the spindle is a bit longer?

Doesn't Trek Uk still have axles in stock? trekcol(warranty guy) appears on STW, could be worth trying.

Turns out the cooks e-cranks I'd sourced for the klein were duff. Soooo what should I go for?

Cooks e-cranks again?
M900?
Later Middleburn?

Not sure a dog bone style or garishly anodised crank would look well with the paint. Still need some degree of trckness though. Any ideas :?:


still got the ecranks? I need a drive side arm
