Yep, profiles or Odyssey 41Thermals would be my choice.

Yeah, i changed my mind, i would rather have Odysseys.

Just because i can think of at least 4 people that have had Profiles come loose, and they knew what they were doing when they put them on...

And out of the 3 or 4 people i know with Odyssey Cranks, i havent heard/seen them have any problems.

You're lucky to know so many people. I only have one friend that rides, and he's too poor to buy new stuff to try it out so I have to look online to find out about parts, or buy it myself

I actually have Primo Hollowbites, and i have to say, im not a fan, they look bad, are heavier that Profiles and Odyssey's and they dont have warrantys, not to mention the creaking noise that mine make (and yes i have check and there is nothing wrong with them and several times i have re-qreased them and made sure they were good, but they still creak)

So just get either Odysseys or Profiles.

about the creaking noise, my friends bike was makin a creakin noise, and he thought it was the cranks, but come to find out it was a slight crack in the frame up by the headset, so slight you could barly hear it.

I checked my frame, and entire bike, but even if it was my frame, i have the money sitting around for a new one...

I just have to convince my damn parents...

(oh, in other news, i changed my mind again, im getting a Fit Flow 20.75")

Im sure there going to be more expensive, and id rather get my Fit Flow...

I dont know why, just after seeing the Flow and the Sunday...


The Flow seems to be a Series 2 thats lighter and has japanesse tubing...

And the Series 2's were good, and the Flow is cheap too!


And if i get the Flow, ill have enough money to get a new back wheel(Odyssey Cassette 48h 10t driver) as well as a chainwheel(Fit Lite 28t)...
