Best 19mm spindle cranks besides profiles

Edited Date/Time: 6/21/2014 1:40 PM

I'm currently riding stock cranks and l need upgrades since they're starting to flex so what are the best 19mm spindle 48 spline cranks out there in everyone's opinion? And don't give smartass answers having to do with the garrett vs brandon thing because I'm not in the mood

Premium 1948 cranks. I ride them and have never heard of them breaking.

Honestly, I'm not sure 19mm 48 splines are the way to go.
If you've got the cash, Primo power/hollowbites or those new machined eclat cranks would be my choice. It means getting a new BB to fit the 22mm spindle.
When I eventually get new cranks, that's probably what I'll do, go for some powerbites or the Eclat ones, can't remember the name right now.
I have Subrosa Bitchin cranks in 19mm btw, they're fine.

Eclat Maverick cranks.

I've been told alloy cranks are flexy and I like a stiff setup (no pun intended) so I would rather chromoly. I thought about getting the subrosa bitchin's but I want more options. How about éclat tibias?

I wouldn't know. I went from stock 8 splines to my bitchin's and I've been running them for about 2 years, no problems... probably closer to 3 years actually.

The subrosa cranks might be the way to go then. Thanks for the help

The eclats are most of the teams choice of crank so they must be good.
I ran some eastern tribes for 2yrs, and they were solid af, didnt break or anything, i just upgraded.
Vocal do some pretty decent 19mm cranks, i know a couple of people on them

My powerbites and hollowbites are as stiff and as strong as my tibias, all awesome cranks.

I have heard total hangover cranks are good and that there SUPER strong, majority (like 75%) of people at my local park ride them

They're nothing special at all. They're not really any different than cranks like United Value cranks but they cost the same as higher end cranks like Thunderbolts and Stolen Teams.

These are good. Mine are 2 years old, and I am a fat guy. Zero issues.

I am sick and tired of the "cliques" that this sport has recently developed. We should embrace the fact that we all ride a little kids bike, and not worry about the small details. When you take riding in its most basic form, we are all the same.

I am 100% certain your friend cracked them beforehand, and they gave out on that crank due to the extra pressure put on that arm.

Fit indent 24s I love mine and they come with their own bottom bracket

Subrosa bitchens. Going on 3 years with mine and I'm no good at crank grinds that I'm always trying.

I seek progression, not perfection.

don't have any experience with them but fiend cranks are 22mm. just letting you know since you said you're looking for 19mm

You're never too old to have fun.
