Strengths: Superstiff and light,easy to service the best crank ever made,thank you Alex Pong and Magic motocycle
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!
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...
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...
Similar Products Used: Once you ride these, you don't wanna try others !!!

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 just bought a new 2013 Scale 900 SL. I took it on it's maiden voyage today and confirmed that the Furious Freds are best left for CX, road, or super smooth trails. 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 »
The bike shop I work at picked up Scott bikes a little over 6 months ago. At first I was very interested in the Genius 700 bikes. I have been on a SC Tallboy the past year and have loved it. I was pretty hooked on the 29ers and started thinking about the Genius 900. The geometry seems right for ... Read More »
