I'm looking to get new cranks and finding it difficult to get the right ones. How did you come to buy these?
I'm looking a Truvativ ISIS and Raceface.

Very nice, I'm sure you will be happy with them. I run FSA cranks on all three of my bikes. I have a carbon pro double on my roadie, a carbon pro mtb on my enlightnment, and a caron MEGA EXO crankset on my Truth. I have had about 5 or 6 sets of their cranks total and I have never had a problem.

BTW, don't ya love being able to order from QBP?!?!

QBP Quality Bike Products, got to be a lbs mechanic or floor manager or good friends with either of the above to order from the catalogue.

BTW here is their site. http://www.qbp.com/index.html

Yup, half the time while I am at work I'm surfing their website figuring out what to order next. This week I spent $60 (wholesale) on clifshots and cytomax. Also ordered some new bike racks for the back of my truck and an American Classic bottom bracket for my roadie. Sometimes getting things cheap gets expensive.

Cool stuff. I like my v-drives so far, but the race face bottom bracket is a POS.


Your bike looks awesome now
