TruVativ Five-D Cranks

Hey any opinions on these? I'm somewhat on a budget and found a closeout on them.

It's a crappy square taper crank. For the price not a bad deal. Great for a second bike or a commuter.

i used to have it on my bike. in my opinion, its a decent square tapered crank. depending on what your doing, it should be fine, and you cant beat the price.

i never rode hard on it, i didnt start until i got my new bike, so over time and abuse, i dont know how it will hold out.

Yeah I figured it was kinda on the cheap side being that it is cheap.lol Anyway I bought a bike from someone and he had one of those sent to me. I figure I'll try it out then once I have more money to work with I can go with a much better crank.....but I'm sure this one will suffice for now.
