    IRO cranks?

    How do these compare to the Truvativs that come on Kilo TT's or RPMs on the Windsor hour?

    I don't know how they compare, but I can say that they are a very good crank for the money.

    Highly recommended. I'd wager that they're better than your Truvativ cranks.

    However, check the chainring bolts when you get them...all 3 sets I've purchased had slightly loose bolts.

    the performance difference between those cranks are minimal at most. I've been running the "crappy" truvativ touro cranks for about 2 years on a rush hour and they're just fine. I think people don't like the truvativ's because of aesthetics, not because lack of performance.

    if i'm worried about performance, i'm going with dura ace. And i'm sure as hell not putting those cranks on a bike i'm riding in the street.

    Brown Santa brought me a pair today and I put them on my BFSSFGGBTB. I'm quite pleased with the quality. The shape and contours look a little weird to me but I'll get used to it.
