I have the following stuff for a potential crossbike /commuter set up
a pair of saint cranks circa 2007 or a 105 crankset I can steal off my road bike
ideally I want to run 1x9 36 or 38 tooth front ring but I could live with the 39 on the 105. frame would be a traitor crusade.
would either of those work or do I need to buy a new crankset ? given id want an optimum chain-line if I had to pay up for new crankest what would I get? I have a near new X9 9 speed mtb shifter/cassette/derailleur as well
plan is flat bar set up on the crusade
