Serviceable, Made in the USA (MUSA) bling to improve your pedal stroke. That’s what bespoke carbon frame builder Matt Appleman is offering the masses with his latest offering, the 2XR crankset.

The 2XR crank is the result of the Minnesotan’s vision of how componentry affects overall bike fit and rider comfort. While many riders might never experience the tailored fit comfort of a custom bicycle, Appleman believes that an appropriately sized crank can go a long way.
