White Industries has expanded their narrow-wide direct mount chainring collection to fit their square taper cranksets. Those cranks use a smaller diameter mount than the rings on the 30mm spindle versions, which already had narrow-wide rings available.

They also have a new lock ring for square taper cranks that adds a standard BB / Centerlock tool interface around their existing three-notch setup.

The headsets are fantastically nice. Got to play with them for NAHBS. Cool features with them too.

Love White Industries! They some of these hubs out there and now add head sets to that list. Stealth black is sweet! That’s a good photo but it looked even better in person.

I really appreciate the craftsmanship of white industry products…but if an individual has $240+ to shell out on an upscale square taper crankset I’d have to imagine they’d first look into spending the same amount on a crankset with a modern BB. A GX Eagle crankset, for example, retails for $120 and is 25 grams lighter (for those who count).

I ride my commuter bike in rain, snow etc..year round. Minimal maintenance except oil on chain. Ride my MTB on weekends and maintain it very well. My commuter bike has a square BB, I change it every ~10000km. My mountain bike has a “modern” BB, I change the bearings every year. Go figure…

This is my experience as well. High quality square taper BBs will outperform modern, mass-produced equivalents every time. Especially if they’re BB30 ……..
