well i bought the diabolous 170mm arms and BB a few weeks ago. once i got them i started hearing mixed reviews from other people about them. i also heard alot of great things. well after riding them super hard on a few of my local trails, hitting all the drops and pedalling more then ever, everythings still super solid and working awesome. just thought i would put the word out there just so if anyone is looking at these cranks, go for them. heres a few pics of the bike

I gotta agree with you. I started to get concerned after hearing the horror stories of failing spacers etc. but I've given them plenty of abuse and they're still holding strong.

Great cranks, but not good quality bottom brackets. I put some shimano cups on mine when they failed and have had no probs.

Who cares about the cranks, tell me about the 2002!

Sweet bike. I put some diabolous on a 5.5 I have and the middle ring was out of round. It was one of the 1st cranksets made, and Raceface overnited me a replacement. They have been great since.
Here is my baby.
