Strengths:    Light, stiff, and they look neat.

Weaknesses:    The non-drive side will literally fall off under normal conditions. Proprietary Truvativ BB...

Bottom Line:   
These are junk. Carry an 8mm wrench if you dare to ride these cranks. These fall off my bike or loosen up enough to be noticed every time I ride. Thread lock, teflon tape, and numerous consultations with my LBS have forced me to conclude that these are indeed the worst cranks I have ever ridden.

Strengths:    Good looks, light weight, shifts clean and quick. Haven't had
any issues with BB wear/failure or non-drive side arm coming
loose (lots of grease and a torque wrench - follow the instructions).

Weaknesses:    Chain ring wear is appalling, especially the 36T.

Bottom Line:   
Looks good, quite light but wears too fast and there's the
nagging worry in the back of the mind ... is it going to come
loose. The bash ring fits very nicely on my M665 and looks the
dogs daggely bits :-]

Weaknesses:    left crank stripped

Bottom Line:   
these cranks came stockon my bike. less than 5 months of riding the left crank came off. LBS put it back on, then fell off again within 2 rides. left rank was stripped and would never stay on again. found out his happens alot with these flaw. supposedly fix in the 2008 version...but at $250 for the 2008's it's an expensive way to find out. the manufacturer replaced then free...but if they fall off again i'll change out the crank set. gave a 1 chili rating since they fell off and should NEVER do that.

Date Reviewed: May 2, 2008

Strengths:    - Rather light
- Strong enough but I'm light @ 150-160
- Bash guard is damn strong

Weaknesses:    - Cranks came loose a couple of times
- Chainrings have really bad wear after 1 season (of hard riding that is)

Bottom Line:   
Since these cranks came stock on the bike so I'd say they were good enough as an OEM crank. They've lasted 1 whole season completely filled with riding and are still running pretty good apart from the chainrings. They shifted well but got worn so fast causing chainsuck. I replaced them with blackspires for this season.

I repacked the BB bearings after 1 season but I should have replaced them altogether. I consider this normal wear though having put probably 1000km on them.

The cranks coming loose is annoying so make sure you have your 8mm allen when going on a ride. I've been able to tighten the cranks enough for it to stop and I suppose some loctite would get rid of the problem as well.

I wouldn't buy these cranks aftermarket, I'd go for the Saint instead (or the new SLX???). But I suppose that if you're on a budget it's a pretty good compromise!

Date Reviewed: December 14, 2007

Strengths:    Very Stiff, smooth, light, strong, and looks good.

Weaknesses:    none so far but i will submit another review if anything goes wrong

Bottom Line:   
I bought this crank set because I wanted something lighter and stronger because I'm a 215lb rider and the Isoflow was alittle flexy for me. Also, I really never use the small and large chainrings and I had already bent the large chainring on the Isoflow by going over logs and such. The 2.2 came with a alumimum bash gaurd and has alittle better ground clearance. I also like the fact it even looks more beefy but is lighter than the Isoflow. I rode really hard and even did some jumps the first couple of times after I had my bike shop install the 2.2 and i haven't had any problems with anything coming loose. So if u use only the middle or small chainring then i would recommend this crankset as a good choice for an upgrade over you OEM crankset.

Strengths:    Stiff, light for the durability, looks

Weaknesses:    Non found at this time

Bottom Line:   
So far these cranks have been great. Super easy to install, the aluminum bash gaurd is holding up just fine and I haven't had any problems with them at all. The 26/36 rings have been a bit of an adjustment from the 22/32 but I'm just getting stronger. I would recommend these to anyone looking for an AM crank with 2 rings and a bash.

Get out and ride!

Bottom Line:   
I had heard good things about Truvativ Cranks but after trying these cranks out, they are not as strong as I was told.
