Overall Product Rating 5 / 5
Beautifully finished high quality chainset

I recommend this product
ConsNot cheap
ProsPeerless quality, will last a long long time
I bought one of these chainsets for a cost no object MTB I was building with a Reynolds 953 custom frame, XTR (9 speed) gears and Hope hubs, brakes, even Hope pedals. The chainset is extremely well made, the shifting is excellent as I have slickshift hardcoat rings and it feels stiff and solid underfoot.
The installation is straightforward with an 8mm Allen key for the non drive side and there is a small threaded ring with an a/k bolt on one side to take up end float.
I have fitted a Hope ceramic BB with this chainset but standard Shimano external type will fit.
Highly recommended. Especially as my other Middleburn chainset is an RS7 square taper which is still going strong after many thousands of miles and 20 years of use.

Will this work with 10 speeds setup?

Yes this should be fine with 10 speed.

Hi, Will this fit in a Shimano hollowtech 2 bottom bracket?

The cranks fit Middleburn's X-TYPE bottom bracket or the Hollow Tech bottom bracket from many other manufactures.

Does This Require Any Special Tools For Installation?

If you already have a bottom bracket fitted then you only require an allen key to fit this chainset.

Will The Middleburn Xtype Triple Chainset Run Ok With Xt 11 Speed

Will the middleburn chainrings run with xt m8000 11 speed?

These chainsets pre-date the release of 11spd MTB groupsets so there is nothing from Middleburn to say if they'd be compatible or not, but in all honesty there is not any massive difference between them so we think you should be absolutely fine using this chainset with an 11spd set up.
