Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Solid
Because of the weather this year and the grinding paste it creates up at the North York Moors, I was expecting gritty sounding cranks pretty quickly. All I have had to do is remove the driveside arm and wipe round once just cos it was difficult to reach otherwise. In this time, I have had to regrease my hubs twice. They just do what they should solid, not too heavy and look a bit different, which is nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Fitted correct, they won't be beaten
Had them on for 4,200 miles all XC. Some reviews say rubbish bottom bracket.
All i can say is i fitted them myself (easy) took notice of the instructions and have had no probs. They have had all weathers thrown at them and the miles. Still as smooth as day one. Brilliant cranks. Fitted correctly you can't argue. Ran XT and Truvativ. For this price or any other, these will blow them both away!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous BB lifespan too short
This is a review of a past model. Those BB's they come with? There's a sign on them "do not dismantle". What that means is "when the bearings have worn out, you need a whole new BB". Given their bearings don't seem to last more than a few thousand miles, that becomes an expensive hobby. I don't know how many miles I've ridden, but the BB lasted about the same as 3 sets of chains and cassettes, meaning you've just added another item to the operational costs of a bike. When mine died, I upgraded to the Hope BB as its bearings can be replaced.
