I have no real price range, I want solid and long lasting cranks. I intend on running a spline drive sprocket. Any suggestions?

Thanks for any help!

few ideas for you
also, spline drive can be a pain in the ass, just saying, nothing wrong with it though
animal akimbo
fit 24mm cranks
subrosa bitchin's
cult deathrow, made in us and 22mm
thunderbolts if you aren't set on Spline Drive
heard good things about the eclat ones

wouldn't recommend primo or shadow aluminum cranks as they are not 48 spline and are can strip and break with heavy abuse

I've just ordered the 24mm fit Indents In 165. So I think those are good.

Fit teams in 19mm where bomb proof.

I know you want spline drive for some reason but I like thunder bolts and shadow noctis aswell

I'm a punk bmxer, I can't do it well so I do it loud.

I have Shadow Noctis they are really nice if you want socket drive and I would reccomend Profile Spline Drive if you want spline.

My friend just got socket drive Thunderbolts and a Killington and it's insanely smooth.

I've been running Redline Devices (The old 3 piece ones) for over a year and a half now and I've had no problems. Gonna be picking up a Tree Lite spline drive sprocket after I sell my coaster.

I also have 170mm 2nd gen Primo Powerbites and they're great.

get some primo's but id stick with the V1's for anything.
if you really really want spline drive get some odysseys. they should last you just as good

The Primo's are 4 spline hahahha, but really all cranks will break after a while and they are still at the top with some other brands. but in the end its all personal preference for cranks. Primo's are great because they are strong as hell and are also a straight crank arm which i love. but they are also really hollow and made from 7075 which causes them to be stiffer and not bend but cause them to snap under extreme tolerances. with other cranks they will bend and you can ruin the splines, bend the cranks,the pedal bosses are easier to snap and if you ruin them you will need new crank arms (Unless you have access to a lathe and know how to use it greatly.) so end its all up to the buyer but always go for the top products you can

I wanted the 24mm originally but I hadn't known or talked to anyone with 19mm.

I fell in love with the madera 19mm spline drive in nickel. That is why I'd like something compatible with spline drives. I am also aiming for raw cranks or chrome.

Are you talking about the Eclat Onyx cranks? I have looked into the akimbos before and they look promising. Minus the color scheme I am aiming for.

The animal cranks are not all that great

I would suggest stranger cranks if they still have any on Dans with the United 22mm spline drive sprocket both are on sale but only works for lhd with the spline drive system

The Redline G7 cranks are 22mm, solid as hell, and I've been running them for over a year and a half now. Zack Gerber also runs them, and he's a beast!
