Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous solid cranks... but when the bearings go, less fun
I've been hammering a pair of these for about 3-4 years now, good solid cranks, very easy to fit and set up... however, When you do decide you need some new bearings in the BB and would prefere to put some high quality ones in instead of the cheap ones that come with, it is a NIGHTMARE to find the correct ones. The 6804-2RS that is printed on the seals of the bearings (the international bearing number which should make it very very very easy to get the right ones) IS NOT the correct size! Axle is too small for the inner dia, and the BB cups are too small for the outer dia. I have looked into just machining out the BB cups and making a shim for the axle, however machining the cups would only leave me 0.5mm of metal holding them into my frame.

Had mine for 2 years and i got them second hand; simply put they are the strongest crank you can buy that is bmx style, don't buy anything else. The people having issues fitting them are seriously dumb if they can't fit these with ease.

I run the 170mm set on my ns capital. I'm a hard rider and these things take everything such as grinds and spins from drops they have also been powdercoated and are as strong as ever. These cranks are the only good thing DMR make as everything else is crap.The people saying they are hard to install are obviously mechanically challenged as they are easy to fit. Don't buy any other bmx crankset like profiles or twombolts as these are lighter,stronger and don't cost a bomb.

these cranks are awesome but i have foun it difficult to fit the bb because it doesnt say the exact spacers need to fit it to a 78mm wide bb, also you need to make sure it lines up right otherwise you get a horrible clicking noise every time you peddle but once sorted the nices cranks i have used :D

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous there good but a pain to fit.
these cranks are only good if you can get them on. the 48 spline axle is hard to line up. and the chainring spacer you get provided you need a tap and die tool to get it on. in the end to make the left crank arm fit i filed the axle down a little and used the tool provided. now about the tool provided, when you try and get the left crank arm on you put the tool through and screw it in to the axle, but the spacer is too big which you get with it, so the threads dont make contact. so to tackle this i used some different spacers which was smaller then it went on still with difficulty.(it was tight) but when there on they are great. the four bearing bottom bracket is super smooth. i do recommend these cranks if you've got the patience to fit them. i have the white ones at 170mm. maybe it'll be different if you bought the 175mm instead. if they was easier to fit they would be 5 stars easy.
