This will cost me $161 AUD and i really really like the look of them...

Crankset: http://www.evanscycles.com/products/premium/1948-spline-drive-crank-combo-ec037794

Plus it comes with a sprocket so i won't have to purchase a Tree Lite sprocket for a while till i break that one.

Has anyone got these and know if they're good or not?
These are a definitive choice for me because im extremely undecisive!

I really like these and hope somebody tells me they are good cause if they are shit ill be bummed sad
First every legit new crankset, and want it to be special so i want to spoil myself with spline drive cranks and bonus sprocket.


What do you guys reckon?

I don't particularly trust the sprocket so ill be investing in a decent spline drive sprocket.

Light enough
Almost no flex
Really stiff
No not really except being 48 spline
Mine were reliable I guess
Splines wore out super fast.
Pros: stiff, not too light, chrome looks pretty good.
Cons: 48s hassle but worth it & the sticker comes off the back after awhile (if you care)
Also that sprocket isnt too bad. If you get the non-sd & get a tree that would be best.

thanks man, ill definantly buy them, i know how much a pain 48 splines can be and nah i don't care about the stickers haha, ill probably just buy a sticker pack or something, i might put heaps of clear coats over them so they get uber shiny.

Light? Decently light, I came from Profiles to these, didn't notice a huge difference.
Flex? I weigh 230 lbs, and they don't flex much for me.
Stiff? Yep.
Pain in the ass? Nope. I have tightened the bolts a whopping 2 times. One was installing a new sprocket (I went spline drive on that)
Reliable? So far yea.
Issues? Dirty fingerprints on the chrome from me. HUGE pet peeve haha, but it wipes away.
Pro's and Con's? Pros: Light, solid, chrome, stiff, hold up to my fat ass.
Cons: None yet.

48 Splines haven't been an issue for me, lined up nicely and is easy to remove with a couple taps with my hand (USE GREASE WHEN INSTALLING). I would say give em a go.
