    No it doesn't tighten up right, And XS cranks are unconvetionally designed, they are held on by the arms not bolts on the spindle.

    That's not unconventional at all. I would know, as I owned a pair of them six years ago; Primo Powerbites and plenty of other cranks are held to the spindle with pinch bolts.

    Tighten the side bolts until the crank is sufficiently tight, and then tighten the pinch bolts down. It's very simple.

    and by Primo axle i mean...a crank with a pinch bolt...becaue most cranks with pinch bolts have square axles or big splines...unlike the Profiles that everyone uses..which have 48 small splines...

    The XS cranks had an 8-spline spindle, actually.

    When I tightened it it would get to a certain point, then get loose.

    you stripped your bolts out. you're pretty much screwed, no pun intended.

    throw those cranks in the garbage, and go buy a new set. don't overtighten the new ones.

    Hard to argue with that logic, but the word is "Genius".
