I had my first race of the season yesterday and I felt pretty good despite a major setback. I noticed my crank was loose after a couple of practice laps so I tightened it up and decided to ride with the allen wrench just in case. I ended up having to stop at least once per lap to tighten the crank (I carpooled so no backup bike). I haven't seen the results but I should have finished mid pack or maybe a little better.
So now I am in need of a new crank. I am looking at a shimano cx50 or a sram apex. Are there any other cranks in that general price range I should consider?
