One upside of the delayed XTR M9100 cranks, we get a new lighter crankset that uses the old pinch bolt non drive side interface, but still fits the new direct mount chainrings.

As someone who hates the fact that you need a bloody big torque wrench to get most cranks on and off nowadays, this is a big plus for me.

Looks like they have changed the profile of the teeth to be more like the original narrow wide rings. Much less squared off and blocky. interesting.

Aren't those the stop gap non branded cranks? Heard those are actually new XT. Actual XTR cranks are still delayed from what I hear.

Was it a competition for the worlds most boring looking cranks? Clear winner.

He's just disappointed they don't come in orange to match his rusty bikes.

Also, threaded pedal inserts, not that shitty press-fit stuff.

Exactly. We do not want a return to Kooka crap.
