If you check on the net, there are lots of noise problems regarding this crank. Other than the extra acoustic effect, this is a good hassel free crank for the price.

Strengths
- Price
- Durability

Weaknesses
- It squeaks!!! (never got rid of the problem)

While using my old crank, i fell in love with this when i first held it in my hands. It was a second hand crank and i nearly wanted to buy it on the spot. About a year later, with an allowance from the army during NS, bought the crank and BB. Never had any complaints since.

paint wears off after use

" Good piece of pricey metal "


Overall Rating
Reviewed on: 28th Jun 2002 from Singapore

The Review
Its a HOLLOWTECH, brother. So don't expect it to weigh like lead. But then I have to say I don't know the difference of weight between this and my old Allow Crankset, coz I guess the difference might be down to only a few grams eh? I love its colour though, pretty nice one, though I'd prefer the XT or XTR hee~ However S$160 is abit to high for me, but got it as a present from my daddy =)

Strengths
>Quite Light
>Durable
>Nice Colour

Weaknesses
>Colour may be detested by some, but i love it
>Pricey for a 17yo like me

" Cheap, Good Looking and Effective "


Overall Rating
Reviewed on: 25th Oct 2001 from Singapore

The Review
For those with a limited budget, th LX cranks represent probably the best value in the Shimano range - the price goes up exponentially for improvemed performance after the LX.

They will serve casual cyclists to the occasional racers well.

Weaknesses
Not very stiff, can feel the cranks flex under power.

CREAAAKK!!! - not the crank itself but the BB - I have read many complaints about the XT splined BB. If you are lucky, the BB you get is creak-free....my XT BB sadly isn't.
