Strengths:    Strong, light for what they are, cool to look at

Weaknesses:    none so far

Bottom Line:   
These are the best deal on the net for mountain biking imo. I was hesitant to buy these cranks because of the reviews here. After eight rides I decided to finally do a review.

First off, tighten up the bolts nice and tight the first time, they won't come loose on you. They haven't backed out on me at all.

These shift great, bottom bracket feels smooth as butter, and they look killer! I'm extremely happy with this crankset. I kinda wish I bought another. I bought some Meat Grinders for my FS, we'll see how they compare.

I'm sure there are lighter cranks out there, but these are smooth, durable, and killer to look at. If you're considering this crankset, just buy it. Only thing you should be deciding is if you want freeride or downhill version. $100, they should be $300 still. A shame Azonic quit making them.

Strengths:    Appear to be much higher quality than the Husselfelts they replaced. Pretty light weight considering its a DH/FR crankset. Looks good.

Weaknesses:    none at this point

Bottom Line:   
I just got these last night and installed them. I will update my review as I ride them. On first impression they seam to be of a much higher quality than the hussefelts i had last....those only lasted me 1.5hrs of ride time. The overall design of the crankset is very nice and they are light weight for DH cranks. The bottom bracket wasn't long enough to use on my bike so I can't comment on that. Took a short cruise around after installing and hear a strange clicking noise when in the large chainring and shifts were pretty sloppy up there. Hopefully this goes away after a little derailur adjustment.

Strengths:    strong and sweet looking. nice chainring guard

Weaknesses:    BB sucks gonads-for that much cheddar should have included a higher quality BB. these retail 380-I got lucky with the price.

Bottom Line:   
Super bad crank arm. The BB sucks and should not even be mounted-a decent shimano or race face is 35-50 bucks or so. I have the single speed version with the 38t ring and 170mm arms. I really like this set up and you should not be worried avout them-no flex and I am a chubby one.

Strengths:    light, stiff, stong

Weaknesses:    ISIS drive... bolts come loose often even with a crapload of loctite on them

Bottom Line:   
awesome cranks besides the bolts coming loose. they are super stiff and do not flex. definately woth 130 bucks, and being brand new with that price is a plus.
