    Strengths:    Looks nice, precise, etc... but

    Weaknesses:    strength

    Bottom Line:   
    I bought 2 pairs of DHS crankset, the 165mm disk worked well on hardcore street/DH and is now used on my citybike. The second 175mm DHS broke on my citybike while pedaling uphill, in the past it was not even really used so... unfortunately I think the design is very weak.

    Strengths:    real purty, stiffest i've experienced

    Weaknesses:    month wait to get square taper dhs currently

    Bottom Line:   
    Mated with a phil wood stainless bb, i use this for xc racing. I installed it myself and have not had to mess with it since. It was only 480 grams (best i can remember), 50 grams more than the xc version. Looks and feels like it will last. Don at monkamoo.com was a good guy to deal with. I'm putting a set on my cross rig too...
    Buy it, you won't be disappointed.

    Strengths:    I bought these cranks after breaking 2 sets of Shimano Alivio cranks and 1 set of Truvative DH cranks and first impression are awesome very very stiff, brilliant design i got the black ones with the DISC instead of the spider which looks very strong shops said 5 year warranty on anything i do to them so that good, got them half price, better than race face for wank factor if thats what you are after

    Weaknesses:    no weakness yet

    Bottom Line:   
    Better Than Race Face

    I got them for a great price $330 New Zealand ($)
    about $170 USA

    Please help me identify the year of my Foes DHS Mono

    Here is a picture of my Foes DHS Mono. I bought it on Craigs last this year and took it to Northstar/Downieville/Mammoth (Northern California). I don't have much Downhill experience, but had a blast, (and the bike got lots of attention) [IMG]http://i1105.photobucket.com/albums/h359/mechantbruce/P ... Read More »

    Shock size Q about non-2.1 Foes DHS Mono (later version)

    I know the 2004 Foes DHS Mono (not the 2.1) used a 11.25x3.0 curnutt shock which bolted directly to the swingarm. The later ones (as the 2.1's came out), had the lower shock mount further into the frame and you also had a sperical bearing that could adjust the length of the shock. What's the eye ... Read More »
