The Good:

The Bad:

Overall: I got one of these a year or so back as a replacement for a Balance that I broke, and it was a great choice. It's very small, but feels great in your hand on seatgrabs. Also, it can take a pretty fair amount of abuse without breaking, although I did rip the cover a bit, in addition to somehow blowing out on of the staples on the front.

The Bad:

Overall: I've been running these cranks since early 2004, with no real issues*. They're plenty strong, and have taken abuse over the past few years in the form of pedal and crankarm grinds of all types. Although they're starting to wear down pretty badly now, to the point of needing replacing soon (probably with Wombolts) due to all of the damage I've inflicted on them, they're still holding up very well. I highly, highly recommend these cranks if you need new crank and have decided against going with Wombolts.

*Originally they did get loose quite often and develop the "Profile wobble", but this was fixed by replacing the flush bolts with the washers from Profiles and 3/8"-24tpi hex bolts from OSH.

The Bad:

Overall: I ran this seatpost from early 2003 until just recently. It worked fine, and held my seat nice and tight up until about six months back, at which point the upper part bent, so that I could not get the bolt tight enough to clamp down (this was fixed with duct tape).

I don't think that said damage was from riding, but rather from British Airways manhandling my bike bag, so it still gets five stars.

The Good:

The Bad:

Overall: Great sprocket. I'm on my third one now (first one I had was on a bike that got stolen, then I ended up changing from 30-11 to 25-9), and they've all taken a lot of abuse and stayed pretty true. Although I don't bash my sprocket as much as I used to (due to having 25-9), I still beat the hell out of it doing rodeo grinds, Porter grinds, and whatnot, and it's really no worse for the wear. I highly recommend getting one of these.
