I’m looking for some cheap, fairly good, 140 mm cotterless cranks to go on my 24 inch Stealth Torker. I don’t need anything too good because the uni it’s going on ain’t all that great. Looking at unicycle.com, I don’t see too many options. Here are the links to the ones I’ve found: Lasco $25 Schwinn $14 Monty $69 (don’t want to pay that much)
Are there any other cranks I didn’t see? What do you think?
I was going to suggest Dotek 140mm cranks, but they’re ‘indefinitely out of stock’ at unicycle.com. You could try getting a pair of BMX Dotek 140mm cranks from www.bikepartsusa.com orclick here and cut off the spider. I needed to grind down the remnant of the spider to mount the crank properly on my tuni. They seem to be quite strong but I haven’t done any drops bigger than about 2 feet so far.
Are you buying new cranks because you broke the ones that came with the stealth? If so, that should really influence your decision. If you broke the stealth’s cranks, lasco is not the way to go. I think the stealth has Lascos or something similar.
I don’t know much about cranks, but I’ve heard great things about the Bicycle Euros… is your heart set on 140mm?
The Montys are out of stock in 140mm according to the uni.com link. Just click on crank length. They were popping off the axles because they wouldn’t seat properly, last I heard and it created a safety hazzard. I guess they haven’t figured out how to fix the problem yet.
