why are these cranks so special anyways? light weight, strength, blend of both?
pretty much... they look nice too. I believe they have interchangeable spiders too so you can convert them to the trials set up if need be.

Middleburns are the SH!T...

Middleburn is to cranks, what Chris King is to headsets... Middleburn isn't just a company that makes cranks, but also is part of a larger engineering firm that does ALL kinds of things with metal. The process they use for their cranks makes them 2nd to none and they are SUPER lightweight.

If you want to get them, there used to be a distributor in the U.S. - but I found it a pain to get exactly what I wanted.

Go here:http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/

It's across the "pond" but if you work out the exchange rate it only comes to about $220 USD - which isn't bad...

Get them - go with the RS-7's.

I can vouch for them, as one of my riding buddies who has been through his share of broken cranks hasn't made either of his sets flinch yet...2 seasons and seem to be going strong.

yeah they look awsom are the spider extra, how much $?
You can buy a complete package or build your own. I have an account with Middleburn and find it cheaper to piece the set together rather than buy a complete set. You don't get the nifty box, but hey, you can't ride the box. Last set I sold was around $210 give or take a few $.
