    Left crank is shot - replace or new set?

    Got a kaput SRAM Force left crank. Should I buy a new arm for $120 or get a brand spankin' new Rival crankset for the same price?

    Last time I was replacing my large sprocket it was cheaper to replace both arms and sprockets, I did.

    Whats busted on the arm? I stripped out the fixing bolt, and got a 5$ replacement off universal cycles.

    If its stripped pedal threads, a helicoil may work.

    Otherwise, I would wait and watch on ebay....thats what I did and got a nondrive crankarm for 25 bucks. (for a ultegra crank)

    How is the rest of your crank holding up? if $125 gets your Force working why spend the same money to downgrade to a heavier crank?
