Poor, hard on parts, need new cranks and not sure how to install a set?
So what happens when your sick of riding around all year on twisted and bent cranks? Well for a lot of us… absolutely nothing! As we all know, crank sets can be a pretty expensive investment on your bike. Well myself, personally I’m 17 years old and work in a bike shop, so needless to say I don’t have the largest budget. There are inexpensive cranks out there, to accommodate those of us who can't bust out a hockey sock full of cash, but you might as well just keep riding your current setup because they will end up twisted or you will end up tearing the pedal out of them anyway. I have found that some manufacturers make cranks way to soft. If they are too soft, pedal threads tear even on the smallest impacts, and if you manage to catch your pedal on a solid root or rock, it’s game over.
