Sorry, this product is no longer available! Shimano SLX M660 9 Speed Triple Chainset - 26/36/48 Rings is no longer available at Merlin Cycles. However you may find an alternative or updated product below.
Strongly in its favour:
1) Great chainset for the price.
2) Light and strong.
3) Was able to replace the whole lot in one go. Wish I'd known I could have bought the complete chainset for this price instead of struggling (and failing) to replace a worn outer chain ring that cost nearly half as much (and wasting a full Sunday afternoon trying to fit the blasted thing when I could have been watching Rugby instead).
On the down side:
1) The hollow bolts which secure the outer ring are liable to corrosion and are impossible to remove. Major issue when attempting to replace a worn outer ring (which is why I ended up buying the whole chain set!)
2) Outer chain ring prone to wear. Probably my fault for refusing to use the smaller rings
Got this crankset at the usual awesome price from merlin. I removed the outer ring and installed a bash, pretty lightweight and very comparable to XT, also uses outside bearings which is the same standard as my Ultegra road cranks. Really nice finish on these, seems very durable.
Buy this, you will not get a better price outside of Merlin.
Very nice looking and a lot lighter than my old FSA powerdrive BB/Crank combo. Only been on one long ride but it cleaned up nicely with no scuffing on the crank arms.
Excellent piece of kit, as you would expect from Shimano. Delivery was super quick too. Very happy
Great chain set....why pay more? I have this chain set on several bikes now!
Great chainset with a low price!!!!
Light, well designed. Shifts superb. Couldn`t ask for a better crankset at this price.
Upgraded My cannondale sl5 with this. Very happy with the choice, fitted no problem. It was nice to remove the stock and weighty bottom bracket and replace it with this much lighter construction. Looks and feels a lot better.
Great price great chainset usual merlin speedy delivery.
