Ok, so I was going to get profile cranks, then I was going to get odyssey cranks and I don't want those either. So now I am down to a crank I reallyyyyyy feel I'm going to like. I just want to know about peoples experience with them and how they like them. So please, enlighten me! :D

Basically they made primo cranks better. They use a splined pedal boss so pedals don't seize. They kick ass.get em. A bunch of locals have them and haven't had an issue. Personally I've been rocking my subrosa bitchins for a while and they are the best I've ridden between redline, profile, and twombolts.

I seek progression, not perfection.

"You know how Primo was having problems with Powerbite arms bending inward and added a rib on the back to prevent that? Yeah, let's completely reverse that and take away material there."

Go with Thunderbolts. Proven to be the strongest cranks and backed up by the best warranty.

I threw thunderbolts on my frame and I didn't like how you cant use both dust covers of the bb kit so im not going with those. TSC has a pretty good warranty as well with these cranks I hear.

pretty much sums it up..everything you would like about the primo's & improved everything you would hate about them, they feel really solid, look great and take punishment without getting marked up easy..only problem i've had was a compression bolt getting a little loose and the arm but i'll chalk that up to me not tightening it as much as i should have, honestly some of the best cranks i've ever ran

What? I have Thunders on my bike right now with both dust covers. If you have this issue with Thunderbolts you will have it with the Noctis.

Being Alloy, I have wondered if they stick on crank arm grinds on steel rails?

I ask as I know alloy pegs stick on steel rails and steel pegs stick on alloy rails.

Well the thing is, my BB on my frame is wider than yours and I don't like how far off the spindle the non drive side arm was. But with Noctis I will be able to center it more. I don't think id like 2 piece cranks anyways. Not really my thing.

I think alloy rails have softer material than the cranks, making them stick.

Skateboard trucks probably use similar alloys with cranks and they do not stick to steel rails.

Noctis cranks are great. I ran them for ages. Only reason I got rid of them where to get shorter arms
