 if you want to make something good for the world:
you take a fatbike 29"+ which has boost 148, you make a big fire and throw the bike in there. That was all.

 Not for anything! I'd rather have rods of steel and extra weight than have snappy snappy bye bye ankles....

 I love them they are really stiff and for the most part strong anyone could break any part this doesn't really show that the carbon cranks are weekend then any other. But they could be.

Really stiff ? "REALLY" it is how much? Did you measured it? Tell us, please, your measured stiffness of yours.

">anyone could break any part" - really doesn't show that CARBON CRANKS ARE WEAKER THAN ANY OTHER.
">anyone could break any part" - actually doesn't show anything.
(Why do you tell for others( anyone or majority) second time?)

The praxis is the criterion of truth. And the the guy in this videvo have tested them and showed us the results.

The lightweight dirt-jumper broke it. Yes, it DO SHOW "that the carbon cranks are weekend then any other."
(But it is you who said "ANY OTHER")

I will never by it under my 95kg. They ARE MUCH WEAKER THAN ALLOY 7075T6 or 7055T6 cranks.
I use RF Diabolus - not a single issue under my huge loads and jumps.

Why wouldn't you use the pedal axles and pedal bodies of carbon ? "they are really stff"
OMG, you still use the bearings of steel ?????

 How many pairs of carbon cranks have you ridden?
  • 1 0
 How many pairs of carbon cranks did you measured to tell they are "really stiff" ?
  • 1 0
 4 sets of xo, 2 raceface
  • 1 0
 The measurings in the studio, please.

You've changed 6 pairs of carbon cranks ? And after that you insist they are "really stiff"
This makes me giggling.
Isn't it enough only one pair if it is "really stiff"?

 And as for me, I remember the moment when I've broken the crank of SOLID STEEL.

 good Times tho !
