Nothing so far besides having to put on a few more spacers

Got them used from Karl poynter about 2 months ago. So far they have held up to my riding. And they held up to his.

these are the worst cranks I have ever used. After only about 4 days of riding them the left pedal boss and my pedal snapped off and on the right side it is cracked all the way around..

The Good:

they are strong as fuck if you the V2

The Bad:

the V1 WILL BREAK this is because of the lack of a pedal gussette

Overall Review:

get them, put some lube on the axel BEFORE putting the arms on, you will not have as many problems getting them on or off

Assembly Required

The Good:

Come in a variety of colours, very durable, Light weight.

The Bad:

they are powder coated painted so they are an effin' SOB to get on...

Overall Review:

Overall they are a great 3 piece crank set however lets hope you don't break your chain wheel cuz once you put em' on those baby's arent coming off with out damage being done and quite a tiring struggle! VERDICT: probably wouldn't buy them again due to the fact they are so hard to get on and off and would consider shadow's line of newer crank sets (That have pinch bolts)...

oh cranks why you such a pain to but

Rating:
The Good:

The Bad:

These things suck. I (personally) know two people that have broken them both of which weigh under 150lbs!!! As if that doesn't seal the deal, they didn't even come out in any other size besides 175mm. What's up with that? Thirdly, THEY DIDN'T EVEN COME IN THE COOLEST COLOR SHADOW MAKES. I rock all kinds of Electric Lime Shadow parts because it is awesome, but even if this crank had come in Lime and even if tall people could ride 175mm IT WILL BREAK ON YOU IN LESS THAN A MONTH. Don't waste your money on poorly made cranks. If you're not riding a Profile BMX Crank or a DK Social crank then you're asking for problems. TRUST THE REAL DEAL. When it comes to important parts or expensive parts, never trust a company that doesn't stand behind their product to the point of replacing it anytime in your Life like Odyssey and several others do. Sorry Shadow you weren't ready to make cranks yet.
