Strengths:    Superstiff and light,easy to service the best crank ever made,thank you Alex Pong and Magic motocycle

Weaknesses:    Cannondale,discontinued,Cannondale

Bottom Line:   
The best crank ever made,Heirloom cranks on ever bike I have ever had since 1995 (5),Will keep them until they totally detonate. Cannondale discontinued the best crank ever made. The cranks cost $650.00 in 1995, Thats when a can of coke cost .50 cents. But worth ever penny. Sometimes they are on ebay. BUY THEM!

Strengths:    Very light, very strong, super stiff.

Weaknesses:    $$$$$, don't make them anymore

Bottom Line:   
The best road/cross country cranks money can buy. The new Record carbon cranks are a close second, but have not ridden those yet (they are $1,300 w/o bb)but by far the best XC cranks on the market, buy them if you can find a set.

Strengths:    looks awesome !!!
stiff, stiff and, by the way, it's very stiff too !!!
this crankset is a masterpiece of workmanship !!!

Weaknesses:    None, besides the Coda rings...
Oh, perhaps the price...

Bottom Line:   
I 've ridden my bike for over 5 years now, and this crankset still is PERFECT !!! When you look at it you can't do anything else than admire this peace of work: CNC machined, a perfect finish, very light and stiff like, uhm, I don't know what could be as stiff as this crankset...

I give it 5 flamin' chilis !!!

I can't really do the value rating because this crankset was already on my little jewel when I bought it. But I know these were REALLY expensive (the complete bike costed "only" two times the price of the crankset with BB...). Anyway, I give it 4 chilis 'cause this crankset is worth the money...

Bottom Line:   

For all 13 months these Crankset have been awesome in every way.They are super stiff and very light.Also,they have been free of any maintenance problems ( except for a new set of bearings after 12 months-we ride in rain and mud here for 8 months of the year here ).Not to mention the fact that they look great. Anyone else had experience with these? And why don't more people/publications talk about them?

I since switched to a Rocket Ron in the front and a Maxxis Ikon in the rear (both tubeless). I noticed that my RS SID WC RLT3 was ... Read More »

I was pretty hooked on the 29ers and started thinking about the Genius 900. The geometry seems right for ... Read More »
