Ever since first seeing the new White Industries 30mm spindle road cranks two years ago, I wanted to try a pair out. I love the VBC cranks, but don’t love square taper bottom brackets, so the idea of having a 30mm spindle crank was very appealing to me.
At Interbike this year I spoke with White and was able to finagle a pair in time to build up my OD green Speedvagen OG-1. They were the last piece of the puzzle so to speak. Thanks to the boys at GSC, the build is finally complete and today was the first ride. All this happeend just in time for a big, dumb ride we’re taking off on Wednesday through Friday.
A handful of us are embarking on a 3-day road ride in the Angeles National Forest, ending in Palm Springs. The ride’s total elevation gain will most likely topple 30,000′, so needless to say, I’m stoked to be able to do such an undertaking on a bike with a monster rear cassette and these new cranks…
If you’re interested in checking out the White Industries R30 road cranks, roll on over to your local dealer and order up a pair.
