Strengths:    Strength! god they're strong! come in a single, double, or triple ring configuration so whatever you're looking for, it'll handle it. conservatively painted and designed. i like a nice, understated-looking crank set.

Weaknesses:    i don't think these exist anymore so unless you're huntin EBAY i don't think you'll find them. also the BB isn't as smooth as it used to be. that only took about 2 seasons. rough seasons, fair enough, but isn't this a DH setup?

Bottom Line:   
these things really feel great to stand on! my truvatives hung in there for 4-ish years, and i never broke them or anything, but they didn't ooze confidence like the saint cranks do. they were more flexy, both when landing hard from a drop and while really pounding along on them. the saints are rock solid in every situation i've put them in! they weigh in roughly a pound heavier than my truvatives but to me, weight is an acceptable penalty for confidence. if you truely need strong and don't mind heavy look no further! if you do somehow manage to break a set of these email me! i want to hear that story!

Strengths:    Super stiff and strong. I'm not sure if I could ever break them...

Weaknesses:    A bit on the heavy side

Bottom Line:   
These are probably the best triple ring cranks for a heavier rider that rides really aggressively, I weigh 220 and ride my bike for a bit of everything. They look awesome and perform even better!!!
