- so basically everything!!

Weaknesses:    - high cost (but what do you expect? they are the best dh cranks made)

Bottom Line:   
AMAZING crankset / bottom bracket. I have no complaints to speak of. These cranks are incredibly stiff and strong while still being lightweight. I would recommend them to anyone who has the money to afford them. They are perfect!!!

Strengths:    This product's strength is exactly that. It's strong and tank like. I use this crankset on my single speed after I bent the crank arm on some lower quality Truvative cranks. I ride in the clydesdale category, and found a crank which I truly believe won't fail me.

Weaknesses:    Cost.
Chainring & bashguard sold separately, also for too much money.
Although other manufacturers chainrings and bashguards can work, the crank is set up where only the Shimano M810 bash guard and chainrings get a proper fit.

Bottom Line:   
There are better bargains out there for a single speed crankset. But if you have the spare cash and want a rock solid crankset the Saint is a great option.
