Why didn't you just use the spindle, bearings, and cups that came with the Haro cranks?

And DMC doesn't Run, he nosemanuals.

I know who Run DMC is; hence the capitalized "r" in Run.

i had to put a countersink into them where the crankarms join the crankaxlethingy, because they are not compatible with Mongoose crankaxlethingys.
