Feel it to Believe it

We want you to be riding the best crank length for you. Sometimes you just gotta’ try it before you buy it.

The 2XR FIT Crankset Rental program lets you try different length cranks on your own bike, from the comfort of your own saddle.

How Does Rental Work?

You pay full price deposit for the FIT cranks and other parts up front.

Upon returning the cranks back to Appleman, we refund you the full amount minus the rental costs.

You’ll have up to 3 weeks from delivery day to install and test the cranks.

Cranks and parts need to be shipped in this 3 week window using the provided shipping label.

If you want to purchase your own 2XR Crankset, this is the time to do it! Fill out the included order form with the rental cranks with what you want and you’ll receive a $50 credit towards the new cranks.

After we receive the cranks, we’ll check to see if you wanted to order a crankset and then refund the remaining balance after taking out rental costs.

What Isn’t Included?

  • chainring (you can rent one)

Will I need to Adjust My Bike?

Installing the 2XR FIT Crankset on your bike may require a new bottom bracket and chainrings.

Luckily the 2XR cranks use a 30mm spindle which is a common size and fits on most bikes (see compatibility below).

Some adjustment may be required to shifting if you have a 2x and front derailleur.

The key here is to know what you’ll need and have your bike prepped for the cranks so you can maximize time riding the cranks, not adjusting your bike.

Purple values are especially important to compare against your current crankset when determining compatibility. 2XR Cranks are designed to fit similar to many existing cranks, but not all setups are the same.
