    Oh cool, a counter and a table with someone's hand holding a piece of metal in front of it! yay!

    Sucks about the cranks... I would get those Wombolts, they seem pretty good.

    Why would you buy FSA cranks in the first place?

    I know i don't have much room to talk since i have Primos but they are holding up.
    I still want some Profiles though.

    FSA makes some really good ones for mountain bikes. My V-drives are still going strong after like 2 years, where the crappy truvativ stock ones would get loose after like one day of riding, and they flexed too much.

    Not that I ride that bike all the time, but it's still nice to have those on there... I did break the chainring though, need to get another one.

    All right, everyone else doesn't like the counter and table, but the table's quite interesting. Is that real stone?

    Back to the topic. I'm glad I wasn't riding your bike when the crank snapped...it looks as if it could have had potentially unpleasant consequences.

    1. I've heard wombolts crack

    2. I have explained this before but the reason i got the cranks was that i swapped them for my Fit cranks and i got 15 ($30?) out of it. The Fit ones then cracked on the guy who bought them a couple of months ago.

    3. It's a Granite counter. Expensive stuff

    4. Wasn't tooo bad, i didn't even bail, i just landed and my cranks were at right angles to eachother

    It's beautiful. I was curious, because I don't think any of my relatives have anything like that, and they are all quite posh (unlike yours truly)--especially the lot who live in Wales.

    Consider yourself lucky. With my luck I probably would have broken something, or lost some teeth... .

    Those are expensive too. Also, last time I checked, they were only like $10 less than Wombolts, so I think the Wombolts are more than worth the extra $10.

    I agree with Mude. Profiles all the way. Wombolts and Fly's are okay but Profiles look the best and are clean and simple.
