    Strengths:    Super stiff design for an alloy crank.
    Coming from a cr-mo bmx background this was a must..
    Never had a issue after over 3 years of use.


    Weaknesses:    Could use a steel insert at the pedal end to help reduce overtightening.

    Bottom Line:   
    Scored this on Phantom as a special for AU$99 years ago, they are worth that and half again when new. The only issue I had with them was the drop to 170mm which made for great DH, but I still needed to pedal the stinky up hills.
    I'll be transfering these to my Stab Primo, I like them so much.

    Strengths:    THESE CRANKS ARMS ARE THE BEST IN THIS HARDCORE RACING, STIFF, INTERCHANGABLE W/XTR M950, I HAD THEM SINCE 1999

    Weaknesses:    NONE

    Bottom Line:   
    THE AC CRANKS ARE VERY GOOD CRANKS IF YOU'RE DROPPING 6 TO 9FT DROPS AND CLEARING JUMPS OF 10 FEET OR LESS THEN THESE CRANKS ARE GOOD BUT IF YOU'RE RACER OR URBAN RIDER CHECK OUT THEIR DH COBRAS CRANKS ARM AND THEIR CROMLY-CRANKS YOU
    WON'T HAVE TO GO FAR. MY CRANKS WENT FROM MY 98 LTS TO MY 2001 P-3 AND THEY STILL IN GOOD CONDITION ( LESS THE COLOR)

    Strengths:    Strong, relatively light-weight, look mad

    Weaknesses:    have to be careful with the pedal threads. A few changes of your pedals & the threads get a bit stuffed

    Bottom Line:   
    Awesome bang for ya buck. I was lucky enough to buy the arms just by them selves for a top price. Heaps strong, works well with Truvativ Giga-pipe BB
