sorry, so what does that mean? if my bb axel is between 107.0 and 113.0 mm, i should be okay???

my bb is (should) be a stock xt bb. built in 1995 so it should be from that gen (with parallax hubs).

Should be fine in that range. Though no stay clearances to worry about, just chainline (which I never fin makes much difference for a few mm +/-)

Get the cranks, chuck em on. Will be fine :)

that's assuming i can find a set that doesn't cost an arm and a leg! :lol:

if i find just a set of crank arms, would my XT chainrings fit on them?

Yes if they are 110 bcd (your rings most likely are, just make sure you buy 110 bcd cranks :wink: )

yeah, unfortunately none are in silver. and lots of ppl won't ship out of the USA. how hard is it to buff the anodized colour off the arms and polish it to silver?

as well, how are the Race Face chainrings compared to my stock XT chainrings?

dunno, I'm happy with the look and performance of the stock XT crank and chainrings I have on now, but always liked the race face cranks back then when i first had the bike built but didn't go through with it do to budget.
