I guess guys like Dan Conway, Van Homan, Ben Lewis aren't that hard on their cranks?? Because the bearings are "spaced out"! You must be spaced out!! Lol..and guess what éclat is now making their Onyx cranks in 24mm...Just because you don't have them or like them doesn't mean they suck. That's the dumbest idea ever!
Hah, i was expecting someone to get butthurt about this.
No. I don't own thunderbolts. I own Madera Protocol HT cranks, but I would much prefer thunderbolts.
I'm trying to help this dude out, not be a stuck up asshole about it.
It's simple. Your bearings will not last as long if they're spread out. Think about it. It's entirely pointless, given that there are no issues with well made 22mm cranks and bearings, take the Tibias for example.
I'm not saying he's going to break the bearings, but if you're buying new cranks, I don't know why you would go for something that is weaker and pointless. The thunderbolt wedge system trumps that as well.
I doubt Conway, Lewis, homan, whatever care either way, but you also must remember they build up a new bike on a regular basis.
Either way I don't appreciate you being a complete cunt about it, get your head out of your ass and fucking think about it. Have YOU broken a solid 22mm spindle?
This dude can buy what he likes, if a bigger spindle makes you guys feel tough then go ahead I guess, trying to help him, but I really don't care.
