these are a great crank they haven't crewaked or poped or made even a slight problem for me. the way the crank a arms themselves are made it makes for a ereally still feel and they look pretty good to . the shape and finish of they're crank is nice quality. shadow is known for making good parts and they've done it agian with these cranks plus lots of colors too!
I just built a new front wheel up with these yesterday and they worked quite well. The small chart included with the different odyssey hub/rim combos was a nice little touch to the packaging. If they turn up to be piles of dog doo I'll come back and trash 'em later.
The quality of the cable/housing and overall design of this product looked solid. Problem is, the housing lengths are all wrong on this and don't fit properly. Until that gets fixed, you're best served with a Dragonfly cable.
now i really don't want to jinx my self here but i haven't had one problem w/ this chain in 1year. i ride a 25/9 gearing and it hasn't broken yet.... i have put it through alot of stress and i have slamed it many of times... it still holds up even though it's a little strectched. if you put alot of stress on your chains and break them often, this is for you. don't worry about the weight because i'm pretty sure a little weight on ur bike is better than being in the hospitl because your chain snapped going up a lip of a jump
now profile puts alot of tech into their hubs and alot of quality.. after you ride this hub for the first time you can tell this. i've never had one probelem w/ the two that i've had and i plan to keep buying this hub.... the only reason i got rid of my first one is becase i sold my complete back wheel and i had to get another. it's an amazing hub and if your looking for strength and quality, this might just be the hub for you
wow what to say about this rim. it's amazing basically. it's just all around strong. the chrome is very durrable and lasts. it never came out of true or got a flat spot once while i had it.... i would still have it if i didn't sell my old back wheel.... i'm probably getting another one soon.... i don't care about the weight because it is amazingly strong... i would dare to say stronger than a big city almost
wow i can not tell you how many times i put this sprocket through case, after case and it never bent. tree knew what they were doing when they made this because i never had a problem with it. i would still have it to this day if i haden't traded it for a 25t cuz it was 27t
these cranks are amazing... they have a lifetime guarrente and i doubt that i'll ever have to use it. they have held up to everything that i put them through and i've had them for almost 2 and 1/2 years now. they're smooth and light. they come loose alot for the first month or so but just use lock-tight and thread lock tape and your fine.... other than that, i can't give u a reason not to buy these cranks unless you just want to be trendy.
