Question (sorry to be a pain), on CRC would these two sets of Bolts be fine?

and

Thanks.

for my Raceface Turbine 94 BCD square taper cranks and Specialites TA compact rings..


Hi,
maybe it's due to my pc, but I can't see the links.
But yes, 16mm inner will fit good on Turbine. I bought a set of aluminium ones (I cant remember the lenght) and there is a little gap to reach the top of the threads, but with the threaded part I think they are strong enough.
About the outers, I don't know what to advice you, maybe you should take as example any 3 speeds crankset.

Sorry, links stopped working.

Just wondering, are the inner bolts 8.5mm? (M8.5)

cheers

I had time to gather most of mine together a few days ago, as a couple of my bikes were in pieces to be serviced.

The clover leaf turbine is the newest acquisition, the next oldest is the crankset I have had for the longest. It was a black turbine that came fitted to a Kona stinky way back in 1998, and was transferred to various bikes and was only retired as I now shows a few hairline cracks. I have fond memories of this crank, the bikes it was fitted to and the rides we had. I am glad I have been a loyal raceface customer, their high end products are fantastic.
