QuAx Isis Chromoly Cranks 170mm

Looking for a nice pair, barely used or new, would even consider trading for some KH Moments (165).

Also, if someone has a contact for a supplier, I'd like to know where I can buy a set or two.

Thanks.

The North American distributor is Goudurix in Canada. They have CrMo cranks, but not in 170. They might be able to order you a set if you call them.

I have a set i would swap for the moments, it would probably cost to much in postage to Oz though.

Thanks for the tip!

I searched all over and the only place that had them in stock was Goudurix in Canada. I emailed Goudurix and "Alex" got back to me right away, I was able to call the toll free, placed the order, and they're on the way.

Alex said that the shop has ~75% of all Qu-Ax products, so a good source for Northe America.

Btw, if you are not familiar with these cranks, they are tubu;ar chromoly steel, ISIS standard, very light and strong, powder coated black, only production uni cranks in 170 durable enough for big drops and hard cranking

yes, Goudurix is our importer for US + Canada and has quite a large stock.

Here is a weight comparison: (for another length though):

Hey Josh, thanks for the heads up, but I already ordered mine from Giroux.

It's a good thing you guys are going to carry them, the inexpensive QuAx are not durable enough, already got some creaking after a couple weeks of muni.

I do like that the great Q factor on the inexpensive 170 QuAx cranks is slightly more than on the 165 Moments, gives me a little more control.

Hoping that the steel QuAx cranks have a similar Q, can't remember from the last pair I rode.
