Strength:

Light crank, easy to install and maintain. The Hollowtech 2 System seems to be pretty strong, unlike the Howitzer one from Truvativ.

Weakness:

I myself don't like the fact that it comes with 32 teeth ring, I had to replace it with a 36T ring.

If you don't have $ for Saint, you can go with this one :)

Strength:

light, strong, low-key but sharp looks, general shimano quality, steel pedal inserts

Weakness:

spindle end cap is plastic - they can strip out

I rocked these cranks ALL SUMMER AT WHISTLER and they are solid. i weigh 150 lbs with gear, but my friend also pounded these at whistler all summer and he's 220 with gear and his are still flawless, except for a few scratches. unless you are Josh Bender you are never going to actually need all the strength a crank like saint or holzfeller provides - those make better boat anchors. why not lighten up a bit? trust me, some cornering drills will improve your game way more than some stiff-ass DH crank! these cranks are reasonably priced and perfect for the weight-conscious downhill racer or freerider. 'nuff said.
