Strength:

unbelievable strength to weight ratio. I really wonder if they can break. I have beat them all to hell and back and even the bottom bracket is still perfect with no play or noise. Easiest cranks to install.

Weakness:

Expensive as hell. Look for a good deal on ebay. $350 for a crankset is a lot when you don't know how long they will last.

If you are hard on bikes like I am then these are the best cranks out there. Stiff, strong, light, durable and easy to install. One of the other reviewers mentioned needing a special tool. Name one pair of cranks where you don't need a special tool for the bottom bracket. The tool is easy to get. Park tool BBT-9 for $20 and it has everything you need short of the allen wrench. The only downside of them is the price. If you can pick them up for $250 and under then it is worth every penny. I am giving this a 5 for value based on that price, not full retail.
