Truvativ blaze for urban???

i was at my local shop and heard the mechanic talking about the new Truvativ Blaze crankset being great for urban and some dirtjumps...so i looked on the net and found the blaze is in the "comfort" category...are these cranks good enough for street?

They look like they could, but I would go with the Truvativ Hussefelt.

<wipes tear from eye> Thanks I needed that. For Urban I'd direct you towards the Hussefelt or Holzfeller cranks mounted to a Gigapipe Team DH BB
The Blaze is what they stick on entry-level XC rigs. It will take some abuse, but it ain't for the the big or the bold

I said could, I never said the would hold up. (and by "could" I mean jumping a set of stairs once before they break)
