    Difference of 170mm / 175mm cranks.

    I currently run 170mm cranksets on my bikes. DH, girlfriends AM, and my 20". I realize if I jump up to a 175mm the leverage ratio, feel, speed changes per each rotation. But will I feel that extra 5 mm per side? will I feel a drastic change? What else can I expect? lets hear your input? Thanks...

    Bottom Bracket issues/ E-type derailleur on Transition Covert?

    Transition Covert 68x113 or 68x118 E specs I was using a Truvativ 68/73x118mm ISIS bb in a 1X9 configuration while waiting for a King Earl XC 44/32/22 crankset. Had a Hone E-type fd to use with KE cranks. Got KE and tried it on without Hone to verify chainline to find that the KE caught...

    Crank Options

    Are there any high end cranks being produced with a polished finish? Is anyone in the US building good cranks anymore? Seems like Everyone and their grandma was making a crank 10 years ago.

    Crank Arm Length

    I am just curious as to how much the length of crank arms effects riding. The reason for me asking is albes has a sale on 180mm wombolts that are usually $180, but are $120 for now. I have been riding 175mm, so would jumping up to 180's be extremely awkward to ride? I am just slightly of 6'...

    Crank Arm Clearance ?

    Alright, so I just picked up a pair of sexy white profile cranks for my Eastern Thunderbird. Before ordering them, I called Eastern and confirmed the proper spindle length - 5 3/4". I measured the old Eastern spindle, which came out to 6" - but I didn't think that was going to be an accurate...

    New to 3 piece cranks, a few questions.

    I recently purchased a specialized P.1. The bike came stock with specialized fuse 3pc. cranks and chainwheel. I believe these are also sold under the redline, poverty and mosh brand. The chainwheel, out of the box, had a lot of "wobble" as it spins. this isn't causing my chain to fall off, but...

    self extracting crank arm bolts...

    Ok... so I have an old set of XTR cranks that have Shimano's old self extracting bolts. The system is on an octalink BB. I was wondering if it is possible to replace the self extracting bolts with stand crank arm bolts (and if anyone has done this)? I get an odd creaking from the cranks...

    Deity cranks vs the world...

    I've used Profiles on many of my bikes up until now. I have bent a few pairs, but for the most part they have worked well. I also have used Primo Powerbites on my 20" for ever. So how do the Vedettas measure up? Are there other amazing options (19mm) that I should be considering, or are the...

    Crank Options

    Out of these cranks, which would you prefer to have under your feet? Consider everything from durability, to weight, to style, to warranty, to spindle size, to crank size, to anything else you can think of.

    New cranks

    Put on a pair of MacNeil Conjoined cranks to replace my Shadows. Overall the cranks are the same weight but fit tighter/closer to the BB with a lower profile. Results in less spacers and more spindle/crank interface... Now I can get a 5.75" Ti spindle and drop the 1/4lb I wanted to...
