Has anyone tried both the EC90 and the White (R30 or G30)?

I have a Next SL on my fat bike and like it and the EC90 is basically the same thing, so I'm sure I'd like it.  The weight difference only seems to be a 1-200 grams.  I'm basically interested in stiffness.


The Eastons will probably have more chainring options down the line, which is a good selling point.  However, if I do 1x on the White I can go all silver which is classy.

For crying out loud stop thinking about it and go with the White Industries G30. It's a no brainer. Everything they make is top notch and beautiful. I recently had a new wheelset built up with Velocity rims and Gold White Industry XMR hubs...Perfection. Over time I plan to replace my cranks on my Vaya with White Ind G30 cranks and Bottom bracket..

If Q factor matters look at the difference. The WI are really wide for "road" cranks.

Its not a no brainer. The Easton is lighter, has more chainring options, and is also made in North America.

I have zero doubt that they're both fantastic. I'm just curious if anyone has any experience with both.

PMC- I don't think I have Q factor sensitivity. I'm 6'1" so I have proportionally wider hips than smaller folks who are stuck with the same Q.
