Powerbites never flex, I'm trying to find some in 170mm, but I hear that's a common problem with profiles

my profiles out dents in my cs, i had a thread about it awhile ago. anyways try to drop out any spacers you dont need, thatll make the inward pressure slightly less and the downward take it over

I seek progression, not perfection.

i have them on my Fly, they're pretty nice but i've heard of them snapping at the pedal gusset. I haven't had a problem with them at all and they have absolutely no flex at all. I actually really like these cranks too and i'm really picky since i usually am very skeptical about stuff when it comes to bmx. I like the fact that they're considered a 2.5 crank instead of a 3 piece since they only use 1 spindle bolt.

My cult bars to my failure is the only time I ever noticed flex, my profiles have been surprisingly strong, I honestly got them because they were lightest and I cared back then. Never had a problem with em besides seizing but that's my fault.

I have the Redline Device G7 2.5 piece cranks and they are solid. Zero flex. I have heard cylindrical type crank arms flexing quite a bit where the more square type are more rigid.

Ive got Profiles on one bike & hollowbites on another. The Hollowbites feel sooo much better. I think a good inbetween crank are Eclat Tibias, My friend has a set on his bike & they are indestructable.

haha i know yours did, that's why i asked, you and one other person are the only ones i've heard of snapping the Dolmens...i'm thinking you just got a bad set because i'm heavy and i can still do 5 foot drops and i have yet to have anything happen.
