i pretty much agree. as bad as ISIS seems to have been, what about this whole 4-arm craze?crux said:Sure, I maybe picky or old fashioned call it what you will but there seems to be a complete void in the crank arm arena recently. Ever since the Race face Turbine LP disappeared and even consider the next version a bit of a stretch cranks have evolved into a just another homogonous component. Sure some people complained about the old square tapered cranks not being stiff enough, but was ISIS really an improvement? I'd say bring back the old school Turbines, or at least manufacturer an machined component with out all the integrated features and proprietary chain rings.
Consider this if Race Face were to reintroduce the 7075 Turbines they would put significant pressure on the industry and pretty much own the single speed market place.
Just one old coots opinion
square taper- still working fine for me!
lookin for a decent SS crank? check out white industries.
or a decent 5arm multi gear? sugino XD is readily available & decent cranks.
