I kind of like them as well. Not the titanium spindle one, though. If you are going to spend that much money, might as well get Wombolts or Flys.

The first batch had bad heat-treating and had breakage issues, but the second batch is fine.

well, the flys look durable but i hate square cranks. even though those are barely. the wombolts look really good. i kind of like them as much as the the demolitions but is the 1 peice design good and 22mm is not stock on bikes right?
