    Yo, what is the minimum size chain ring you can run on these? In know they come with 36T, can you run as low as 32?

    Thanks in advance.

    You're best bet is to avoid these cranks entirely. Unless you're cool with your pedal snapping off...

    Funny, but I have been on these cranks for six months now and they have not exploded. I (and the other guys I know using them) must just be lucky....

    And yes, I did see the couple pics of broken ones.

    I could've shown you a snapped pair at the Thaw... (Just never, ever crash, and you'll be fine.)

    How was the Spring Thaw? Couldn't find any results or pics anywhere.

    Like I siad I have seen a few pics, but everyone I know using them has not had a problem. They seemed to hold up well for the WC guys I can't recall anyone not finishing a race as a result of broken XO cranks. I'm not saying they can't break, just saying they have not proven all that fragile in my experince.

    The Thaw was good fun, thanks for the link to the photos.

    I'm making a quarter jar for you that you have to feed every time I see another photo of you looking back to smell your farts while doing a kickout like that. Double payment every time your front wheel is twice the elevation of your back wheel.
