    Possible to ride with two different types of cranks?

    Hey there, I was wondering if I would notice a considerable difference between riding with two different cranks. I have a drive side FSA V Drive Extreme and a Non-Drive side Tru Vativ Hussefelt. Their both 170. They seem pretty similar cranks in term of their uses, but who knows.
    Anybody?

    Some cranks have more offset than others throwing the foot out a bit which might be noticed.

    Cheap ass



    They'll work, provided they both use splined/tapered respectively.
    My money pits:

    Cannondale Jekyll 500 with Avid Mechs and Sun DS2 rims with XT disc hubs.

    Cannondale F900 with SRAM XO shifters/derailler, Mavic X3.1 tubeless wheels, Avid Mechs, Race Face Next LP cranks, Time ATAC pedals, SRAM levers.

    If after some use, you walk funny, it will be a tip off that it wasn't a good idea.

    Other than looking funny, and if the offsets are close they should work just fine.
