    +1 I went through 3-4 or so sets of one piece cranks back before I decided to switch. and I was around 120 lbs.

    Madera's are made by Profile, so I'd go for them. And I concur with bmx2478.

    Agree.
    Madera cranks will be decent as they are made by profile.
    I think (if memory is correct) they are a fair bit heavier though.
    I would still trust them over pretty much any other set of cranks on the market though.

    get a BB kit with your cranks.... just make sure that they have SEALED bearings

    and eastern isnt crap... theyre just not as good as some other companies that charge almost twice as much for a part thats almost exactly the same.

    I strongly advise that you do some research before making a call like that.

    ok so theyre not as nice as a set of profiles, but theyre better than any stock parts you'll get. plus i dont usually have problems with my cranks so i like to go with decent ones that are a little bit cheaper.

    I bet my stock 3pc are better than the Eastern 720.

    Every passing minute is another chance to turn it all around.

    what a load of crap...what kind of bike do you have that your stock cranks are so good?

    and i wouldnt go with tenderizers unless you have like size 20 shoes... theyre huge and heavy

    I never said they were so good, I'm saying Eastern eats poop.

    There's nothing wrong with tenderisers.

    Tenderisers aren't that big.
