So.... I have them and the crankarm won't slide onto the spindle! Ok yes we can beat them on but why does my crankarm from my other set slide on no problem?

idk man i had the same problem, bought a pair of subrosa bitchins secondhand from a friend. they were pretty rusted so I just soaked them in wd/40 and greased the shit out of them, slid right on after that

Ok well the thing is they are supposedly new redline G6s in the package and everything I did see some rust though??? The other crazy thing is that my 8 year old stolen team cranks slide on with no problem rusty crusty and everything?

Are any of the splines bent? I have no clue what I'm talking about I'm just throwing ideas out there.

The G6 cranks are just tight as fuck. I had those too, i have no idea why, use grease and a really good crank installer.

I ordered the G7 cranks recently so we will see if those are much better with that problem.

It's because they're new. All 48 spline cranks fight to go together the first few times. Nothing is worn/broken in yet. In time it will get easier to install although that is not necessarily what you want


I'm on the vital legit list!
