Ive had the same pair of profile cranks for like 5 years, no complaints but its time for new ones, anyone think theres anything better out today, hollowbites? fly cranks? or stick to profile

i don't reall know much about cranks and whats the best. but i always thought profile was. and if theyy lasted over 5 years i would just buy profile again for sure.

primo cranks ftw

I have hollowbites because they came on my bike, and I wouldn't recomend them even though they are still straight. They are too chunky, they have bitten my ankles a few times--maybe they should be called anklebites. Mine don't squeak, but that seems to be a common prob with primo's. Anyway, Profiles work best if you get the bitchin bolts for them, otherwise the spindle boss will collapse if you hit it grinding and make it hard to get the bolts out.

how a plain surface crank messed up your ankles?
i had profile type cranks... those things are ankle destroyers
i love primos cuz i never had a fucked up ankle, easy install, been riding them for 5 years and still like new, more than my friends flys and profiles broken too...

they are chunky where the pinch bolts are. For some reason I keep hitting my ankles there. You're right--they are much easier to install which is a big plus.

Profile are the best. I tried primo hollow bites but they are too big and they bite your ankles pretty damn good. Ouch!

fly are great! don't get hollow bites, aluminum is a soft metal.

Yeah, I don't know how well hollowbites would hold up if you do lots of pedal grinds and crankslides. For strength, they are just as strong as cromo cranks.
