All the Shimano crankarms are functionally the same. I put a Stages 105 crankarm on a Dura Ace 7800 crankset and it works perfectly. The only complaint is that the finish isn't as nice.

Reliable, simple, fun.

My kid rides a FG to school (or at least he did in the Before Times) and won the local U18 cross series on a SSCX. I'm glad to have passed on the bug.
