Product Description

A new addition to the Hussefelt crankset for 2003 is a heat-treated cromoly pedal-thread insert.

The Hussefelt is available in a variety of chainring configurations, including single-DH ring models, 22/32/Rockguard, 22/32/44T, Trialsguard, and our brand-new 28/38/Rockguard model. ISIS Drive interface only. Blast Black anodized finish.

Strengths:    Strongest frame out there... industructable. Disc brakes are prety solid(sqeak a little when wet).

Weaknesses:    Fork sucks, replace it asap. Crankset.

Bottom Line:   
Amazing bike for the price. Bomb proof frame, good brakes. Replace fork and buy a chainstay protector. Crankset could use a preplacement too. GREAT DEAL

Strengths:    looks good, great for jumping

Weaknesses:    creeks like a mother...not sure what its from. left crank decided id pop-off on a nice 6 1/2 ft. drop. keeps comming loose even after i replaced the bolts

Bottom Line:   
seemed like a good crank at first, rode them without worrying for about 1 month. the left side cranks actually "poped" out on a 6 1/2 ft drop. striped the bolt. replaced the bolt but it comes loose alot and creeks.

any suggestions to stop the creeking would be welcome, please e-mail

Strengths:    nothing

Weaknesses:    crank arms bend, pedals strip out, the bolt that connects crank arms to the bb gets stripped out, bb losens after almost every ride.

Bottom Line:   
these are the worst cranks i have every seen. the crankarms bend and hit the chainstay and bend right at the end of the arm near the pedal. both the arms and the pedals get stripped out and the bb losens after every ride. right now my bike is almost unrideable because of these cranks.

Date Reviewed: April 28, 2005

Strengths:    it's really good-looking and strong and intended for jumping , dropping , avoid doing trials with this crank because it WILL bend

Weaknesses:    it bends easily if u make it take impacts into ledges after you try to hop onto them, perfect the art of hopping on ledges so it doesn't bend, then your set to go

Bottom Line:   
get it if you dont want to spend the dollars on a saint or holzfeller or diabolous and you want to have a great time jumping, dropping, and free riding, minus trials riding. this crank is durable so u can let loose, just dont use it for trials

Strengths:    Very durable, Good clearance for logs and stuff without those third chainring teeth.

Weaknesses:    None so far.

Bottom Line:   
I have used these chainrings for at least six months and I usually break anything I can on my bike. I had them installed by my local bike shop and have had no problems with them yet. Maybe other people have installed the chainrings themselves and aided in the stripping of their inserts but I have had no such problems. I do everything from technical rock and log hopping to commuting 20 miles to work and back and have had no problems. Very worth my money.

Strengths:    They are super stiff, look awsome, very strong, and its nice to able to put back that third ring when ever you want because you can just swap it out with the super thick nice bash gaurd.

Weaknesses:    None so far.

Bottom Line:   
I love these cranks I dont care what anyone sais they are sweet and I will always like truvative cranks being a Downhiller and freerider in the off season of racing. Great cranks would recomend for Freeriders who have to pedal up before going down.

Strengths:    The crank arms themselves are pretty sturdy, and look awesome.

Weaknesses:    Pedal threads-- The pedal threads are terrible, I was just riding along a trail yesterday on the way to some dj's and my pedal started to come loose. The threads are stripping so I need to look for some new cranks now.

Bottom Line:   
I would avoid buying these cranks, the threads will strip no matter what kind of riding you do. Not worth the money or the time. If you want some truvativ cranks then I'd suggest either the Holzfeller or some 2005 cranks.

Date Reviewed: March 6, 2004

Strengths:    They "look" strong and they don´t flex.

Weaknesses:    Metal insert stripped right out of crank. I had the same problem as the guy who posted below. After doing some small drops, the metal insert came out on the right crank.

Bottom Line:   
I should have read the reviews before I bought them. This crankset is way to soft. I mean how can the metal insert strip right out of the crank after only 3 months of riding. I´m going to try out the Holzfeller and hope they last longer.

Strengths:    Splined BB, comes with bash ring.

Weaknesses:    Insert not well executed.

Bottom Line:   
I broke this crank on my second ride. I hadn't done any drops or crashed hard yet. The steel insert stripped itself right out of the right hand crank arm. I was riding with the manager of a bike shop who said they have seen this happen quite a few times this season.
