Finish on brand new Alivio crankset
#1
So Santa brought new new Shimano Alivio Crankset for Christmas only ride on them twice for less than 8km and the finish on both sides has wided off! i think from my leg or foot when pedaling. Is this normal or the Crankset defective?

Yes, that is from your foot rubbing on the arm and not a defect. Purely cosmetic and will not hurt a thing. You should see a couple of mine. VERY shiney. Smile
If you did that in 8km, you might want to adjust your foot placement or you'll need new shoes soon!

reminds me of a trick we used to pull on each other at work. polish a small area on someone else's front wheel when they're not looking, then they gotta do the rest of it or it looks funny.
Get on your bad pedalscooter and ride!

I sure hope so, I had to change my entire crankset from an FSA with polished aluminum finish to a Shimano Tiagra with an anodized aluminum finish on my road bike. I use clipless pedals so the rubbing of the foot against them shouldn't be an issue.
