i going to change my current crankset (TruVativ 5D 3.1 22/32/44) with a (TruVativ Power Spline) bottom bracket with something stronger and better but unsure wheather to go for a double rather than a triple chainset also the arm length could be a bit shorter

thanks to all and to all a thanks :)

    What bike, what riding and why do you want to change the current one? If it ain't broke...

  • i ride a giant yukon fx1 do mainly xc riding although i want to do a bit of soft dh if possible got no reason to change just wanna upgrade although the ones i have on now seem ok not had any probs yet just wish crank arm was a bit shorter as i sometimes hit it on the ground when cornering on some corners

    i wouldnt bother, esp with shorter cranks for a xc bike, everyone gets pedal strike on some corners.
