What makes some cranks better than others?

I like profiles, they just feel nice, maybe it's the flex? Dunno. I've also had twombolts, which I liked. Thunderbolts would probably be my first choice if I bought new, just to switch things up from profile. I'm quite interested in the animal akimbo cranks too

Profile Race, although like Grumpy I would probably get the new Odysseys when I'm due an upgrade.

Primo Powerbites.

Odyssey thunderbolts. The wedge interface has a superior design (Brayden don't kill me)

But Animal Akimbos or profiles are never a bad choice either

i like my profile race, they are my first legit pair of cranks (i was riding stock 8 spline cranks for years) and they feel a lot nicer, lighter and look cleaner

Profile race cranks with a ti spindle lasted me 13 years didn't even break them just retired them

Hands down Thunderbolts. Only cranks I've ever ridden that still feel brand new after years of riding them

Thunderbolts with a Ti bolt were amazing now I am on a set of race profiles 160mm length with Ti bolts and Ti GDH spindle. Profiles have been solid but they did come loose once...

Honestly, DK Socials. I also ran Profiles and loved them.

My Primo Powerbites are still as strong and straight, as when I got them 12-ish years ago. I've had to remove many set's of pedals with a 5ft cheater bar and the pedal bosses refuse to strip, or be altered.

I'd have a really hard time choosing cranks these day's... Way too many good choices.
