I need to know how to tell these cranks apart from each other. My friend has a set, but don't know if they are twoms or woms.

i think if the bolt is hallow there twombs if not then there wombs without having bolth sets of cranks in your hands its hard to tell the difference the twombs non drive side arm is like 1.5mm wider at the base and the drive side is a little more beefy

the easiest way to tell is that wombolts will be broken, twombolts will not be. laughing

actually, that's nowhere near what i meant.

every crank breaks under certain circumstances. i snapped two pairs of wombolts, rode the same pair of twombolts for a year and a half with no problems.

wombolts have a smaller drive side arm that goes on the spindle, they use the old wedge cluster that doesnt have the rubber thing. try find someone with twombs, wombolts have a smaller sized bolt,

[LINK TO IMAGE] womb cluster,

[LINK TO IMAGE] twomb cluster,
although the cluster on your cranks could have been updated if they where wombs.
