So I want to replace my current cranks (salt plus groove cranks) with either BSD Substance cranks, Shadow Killer cranks or Profile Columns.

I plan to order them in the next few months when money isn't tight

I'd get thunderbolts.

Out of those though I'd say the profiles.


45 refs and counting check profile.

seen too many madera/profile cranks crack at the welds to recommend the 19mms
not familiar with the 22mms so idk but ive heard good about 'em
bsd seem cool but id say columns because i prefer 3pc
id say no to the shadows just because shadow puts a lot of shoddy products

Go with profiles lifetime warranty to the original owner

Have a 19mm race crank with a ti spindle still running strong after over ten years of abuse

I'd choose the Shadow killers for the super sized bosses and post weld heat treatment. They look much stronger than the other cranks in your list imo, though I'm sure any of them would do great.

Look up reviews on them, hit up team riders on Instagram, and ask those guys who DOMINATE on bikes how they hold up.

Or go with a company with YEARS of solid parts.

Honestly, any of those will probably be fine. Or Thunderbolts.

BSDs out of the ones listed. I'd go Thunderbolts if you can swing them or maybe try the Fit Indent 24s, my little brother has them and they are solid and pretty good deal considering you get a BB with the 24s.
