I have a customer who’s looking for 185mm cranks for the '06 KH/Onza hub. I know there’s a couple of bike brands out there that have cranks that match this 36 spline pattern, but I’ve forgotten who they are. The customer needs to get them in North America.
Thanks for all the friendly comments! In this case it’s a bit frustrating because I’m pretty sure the customer will discover that 185’s are way too long for a muni, but he seems pretty determined to find them.
Not so, I’m riding muni with 190mm Profiles on your 29er rim and really enjoying it. 'Course, I’m old and don’t do all those crazy things the kids do, but the equipment could. Also, it’s about the same crank/diameter ratio as a 26 w/ 175s.
I used to run 180 MM cranks on the old DM ATU, not casue i wanted too… however i really liked the control they gave you… just took too much of the flow away… but yeah i mean you could go down the steepest hill ever… sucks i broke them in half… stupid 7 and half foot drop. However they did force me to learn to be really techincal with hops and rolling hops and correction hops well riding. Becasue i couldn’t really ever get enough flow to just flow over things i either needed to hop them gap over them or slow down to hit them and then torque it over them. Helpful in the long run… happy to be riding 150’s and 160 MM now mind you!
