mr whirly

last week i got the chance to install a surly mr. whirly crankset for the first time.
if you MUST use outboard bearings, i think it is a pretty darn good system. personally, im a square taper kinda guy, but lets not get into that.
things i like about it-
swappable spindle, gives you std mtb chainline, pugsley, or coming soon WI 47.5mm chainline.
uses any shimano MTB compatible outboard bearings (shimano, race face, FSA, chris king, phil wood)
aesthetically pleasing, silver or black, nice laser etched logo.
swappable bolt circle. 110, 94, or 104.
the contour of the arms match the chainstay contour of the karate monkey perfectly (see aesthetically pleasing) ill get a pic of this soon..
