Hi,
I'm looking for some 175mm cranks please nicely, for my Orange MrXC.

M739 or M750 would be be nice - preferably 5-arm - but would consider 4-arm.

Or something else of a suitable vintage.

A set of Middleburn RS2 could be part of the deal if you wanted to swap.

Fingers-crossed!

Got some 175mm M739's compact drive 4 arm - nice. Might be interested in your RS2's - can sort some pics out if so.

Pic of the Middleburn RS2 below.

They are in very good condition. I have ridden them only twice.

If I were to sell them - I would be asking £125 posted.

Hi Giles,
How are you keeping?
Could be tempted by your M752s - 73mm BB by any chance?
How much would you be after?? :)

alright thanks! and you?
Think i have an ES71 XT bb to go with, and adaptor cups to work with 68 and 73. I was planning to use it on my StumpyImage ,(ain't it looking lovely!) but i've had an attack of CBA.

It's in mega nice nick and they fetch good bucks on ebay, so it's a fifty quider really. :wink:

I'm good thanks. Have you been out to Swinley recently?

I wouldn't want to deprive your Stumpy. Can I have a thunk about the M752s in the meantime?

Cool - sleep well.
I'll think about the cranks - maybe we could hook up for a ride at Swinley sometime?
