No idea, either a 180 or 360. I just went to pedal and they were snapped so they probably already cracked or something. I think a 3 was the last trick I did.

Oh yeah but I'm not that good lol. The only tricks I ever do are 3s, 180s, manuals, footjams, fakies and turndowns so it would be pretty boring. And I don't have a camera,filmer, good spots or anything ha.

All I do is Tbogs, tables, and fastplants. And blast shit, but not too trick heavy. I did get a few 3's recently.

Shit sucks man! Back in my young days, we bent the old one pc. Cranks, but that was about all I remember happening. They just felt weird when you went to pedal after a hard landing or whatever. Parts need to be made to last again, not made to last. 6 months so the kids mom buys him more.

Yeah same here I forgot t bogs and tables but tables make no sense to me. I don't do a lot of tricks they're just not my style, and my flat 3s aren't the nicest lol. I should probably actually put together a bike that fits my riding style haha.

Yeah man for sure. I rode these cranks a month or so. I did get them second hand but didn't put them through too much haha. Oh well, I know not to buy these again haha.

Did the person before you put them through hell? haha.

No idea got them through vital lol. Yeah that sounds accurate. They seem to break pretty easy more often then other cranks.

Yeah, I think it's these that always break right there. I know there's at least one brand that gets pics posted a lot breaking there, or the weld at the spindle end. I realize cranks are a high stress item, but damn.

Yeah I watched a set of the V1 cranks snap in the same area and all the rider did was a 180 down a 2 stair haha. I don't think he rode very hard either.. more a flowy, manual/smooth dirt jump rider

Yeah I've seen quite a few fly cranks break on this spot, I liked these cranks so it sucks they broke.

Yeah, I don't do many gaps or stair sets but luckily I think I cracked them on a 3 then went to pedal and it snapped so it was all good haha.

Well yeah, it does suck. It would suck worse if you had gotten fucked up when it snapped. I still hate trying to pedal with a broken part. Crank arm, chain, whatever, it's still a shitty surprise, haha.

Yeah I was kinda glad they snapped when they did haha. I'd be pissed if I payed for them. Yeah that shit sucks haha, my cranks were making noises for a while but I couldn't find out what it was lol.

Got lucky haha that's my biggest fear right now with my Animal cranks since they seem to be cracked, but aren't showing any signs of getting worse. I still 360 off over bar height shit but I'm hoping when/if they actually do break, that it'll be on something small

Yeah for sure haha. Yeah that would suck, if something on my bike sounds weird I don't do anything big. I like my bike to feel real solid and not make noise at all. I always ride real slow and do small stuff if it makes noise or something haha.

My tables are the most inconsitent thing in the world. Some days they are absolutely perfect, other days they suck.
