Just bought some new cranks last week. I ended up getting some Shimano Saints for my bike. I really like the way they feel and how they look. That got me wondering as to what I thought was the coolest component on my bike.
What is the one thing you look at when you admire another rider's bike?
I'm guessing most would say the fork, since there are so many different types and so much adjustability nowadays.
I've always looked at the drivetrain, specifically the cranks and pedals. Don't know why?
I remember when Race Face first introduced their Turbine LP's and Johnny T started using them. I wanted a set soooooo badly.
I've got a soft spot in my heart for Profile Racing chromoly cranks due to my old BMX days, and the fact they're made about 45 mins. away.
That and hubs. I love holding a wheel and spinning it in my hands.
