I want some White Eno single ring cranks but they are square taper and its old tech. Hmmmm.

My current middleburn RS7s are ISIS and the BBs wears out faster than my wages get spent by my wife. So I was going to try the RS8 Xtypes but really like the look of the ENOs, is the square taper BB going to be as stiff as through axel? When ISIS came out they made a hooharr about how it was stiffer than square taper.

Your thoughts will be gladly recieved :-)

Personally I think this axle stiffness thing is so much marketing fluff. But definitely the compromise for Isis and Octalink results in undersized bearings. I would give square taper a go.

Thats my feeling at the moment, and the ENOs look pretty sturdy.
