They feel a lot better and are a lot stronger. They are also a lot easier to take off and repair and such.

Quite possibly the stupidest thing you have ever posted.

3pc cranks are stronger and easier to work with, but i can't see how they would be any better on your feet. In fact considering how small most 1pc cranks are in diameter i think they would be better for tricks like tables where your feet move around.

In my opinion they feel better. I have never tried tables, so I couldn't say anything about that. I just prefer the feel of 3 pc cranks over 1 pc.

They feel stiffer if you count that...

I don't know how 3pc's feel better, but they just do. I've switched back and forth & felt the diff.
Plus, 1pc have this nasty tendancy to bend.
Also, you wouldn't be able to fit 1pc in any proper modern BMX frame. Span, Mid, and Euro BB's are all to small. You need an Amer BB.

Well you should have worded it better.
No excuses.
