I think they're called 48 splines or something. I just saw the name of them a little while ago. But what do you guys prefer to ride? I ccurrently pinch bolts but I've ruined two bolts by grinding. Not quite sure how though. My friend rolls the non punch bolt and has no scratches on his. But his left crank arm snapped today at the weld. Can anyone tell me which one is better and why? Also, what are the best cranks to go with? I have stole mob cranks.

48 spline cranks are better, they have a lot more area to grab on as opposed to 6 spline, 8 spline, 10 spline, 12 spline, and 16 spline cranks, yours are 8 spline I believe. They stay tighter too, and don't get that shifty feeling when your pinch bolts are a little loose. Any crank can break/snap, yours too.

Stolen mobs are shit, from what I heard anyway, Ive never had em so can't really say from personal experience, but I'd go with a decent set of splined cranks over some shitty pinch bolts anyday,

Freestyle is the answer to everything --
a fresh way to approach a dull or a
dangerous thing.
to do a dull thing with style
is preferable to doing a dangerous thing
without it.

What are a good pair of cranks to go with? I've heard profile is good. But I'm not sure.

Fuck 48 spline. Thunderbolts are the only way to go. The best interface, proven to be the strongest cranks, and the best warranty in BMX.
