    I'm riding an '05 P-1 with a severely bent BB spindle. I was just going to get a replacement ISIS BB and call it a day, but I want to make an upgrade to something lighter/stiffer. I've been looking at the Hone crankset or the MRP Bones Lite, and I was just wondering if anyone has any ride time on these. I'm leaning towards the Hone because it will be cheaper, but I want to look at my options before I put Shimano parts on my bike. Any other recommendations would be appreciated. Thanks!
