Strengths:    Crazy strong, pinch-bolts so you won't kill you BB/spindle, idiot-proof installation, look fly.

Weaknesses:    Weight is a minor concern, nothing more.

Bottom Line:   
Buy them, love them, keep them for ever.
If you have hollowbites, buy a Ti axle and enjoy a pair of the lightest cranks you will never break.

Date Reviewed: April 26, 2006

Strengths:    the chainwheel bolt is a bonus cuz unlike some others it actually gets bolted on. the clamping power provided by the dual pinch bolts hold the crank exactly where you need it. the sealed bearing setup is a hell of a lot nicer than the stock ones i had before. lightweight aluminum for strength and weight saving. and the last thing... they look bad ass

Weaknesses:    the name PRiMO should say what weakness they have

Bottom Line:   
if you want a quality crankset that delivers all of your power and stands up to any kind of riding while maintaining a cool style, go with the PowerBites or the HollowBites period

Increasing bite and braking power

If i were to run some fine sandpaper over the discs to give them a bit of a clean/rough up would it help braking performance or is this a big no-no? i'm sure you can do it to pads with no problem?Read More »
