descendants or saints
Nope, should be altas or saint or desendents.

I have saints v1 and live them. Heard nothing but good things about Saint v2 and I have 2 sets of atlas and they're sick.

The new bike I'm building will have desendents because they're a good price and light.

I think descendants with a CK bb would be legit.

You can't beat the Atlas..... lighter, better looking (any color you want)... and with the Race Face warantee ( lifetime replacement for the original owner if you somehow break them):thumbsup:

i think you should go with the saints. i have heard nothing but good about them and they are a good price for a good crank. but if you dont have enough money for them then you should buy a set of truvativ holzfellers they are great cranks and you can get them on ebay for one hundred dollars. =)

I'm gonna go with the atlas crank I know the poll tells me to go the other way but since they have a life time warranty and are like 60 bucks cheaper, they also match my bike better:).

I was of the opinion that as long as they dont break, a crank is a crank. Wrong. I recently upgraded my old holzfellers to the new saints. My bike feels like an industrial machine.
Good point. The descendants are lighter but everything is a compromise. They are either going to flex more than Saint/Atlas or they are going to be weaker. Maybe both.
