I’ve just tried out my new cranks on the advanced Saturday ride for BMW3.
They’re Profile Aluminium Trials cranks in 155mm that come with a
detachable 23 tooth chainring (not easy to detach if you don’t own a set
of Imperial Allen keys - they had a lot of red locktite on). They weigh
about 440 grams and they’re the stiffest cranks I’ve ever used - much
better than Odessy Black Widows. They felt a bit long for 5minutes (I’d
been using 145 cranks recently) but soon felt natural again.
Oh well - the highly polished surface is a bit dirt spattered now - but at
least they match the rest of the Muni.
Only downside is like all Profile gear “it ain’t cheap” but I got them for
half price (75 ukp) from a shop that couldn’t sell them to bikers (well
If they were designed for bike trials I’ll have to worry about bending my
axle before the cranks go.
