    here is a link to the IRD cranks Universal Cycles -- Interloc Super Long Cranks

    just note that with 110bcd the smallest ring you can run is a 34t... might work out for a 1x10 on a 11-36 cassette... or could even go with a 11-42 with this

    but no matter what you are stuck with a square taper crank

I'm a fatty and need a the granny of the triple to climb (at least I have on my road and MTB 175mm cranks)... I also like the fact that I can get away with a narrower cassette with a triple... the high sierra/zinn cranks look stronger but they're also $100+ more... so figured i'd ask ...

    Nope I haven't put the daVinci 200mm cranks on any bike yet.
    After the 36er, I had an idea of a big touring bike based on rabbit holes and knard with an IGH but it's not happening yet.
    I can't even remember how much I paid for these cranks!

    They were selling them for 229, that is why I found these other cranks with help from this site. Although I read where the Davinci may be made better?

    Im not the one who snaps a chain every other month. Im not the one trying to climb hills in a 52-11 gear ratio at 5mph. Im not the one trying to find longer cranks for less money to apply more torque to parts you complain break too easily. Im not the one who hurt my chest curling. Im not the one who claims to snap equipment cables in the gym. Im not the one COMPLETELY ignoring every bit of advice given to him.

    You got me, im an idiot stuck in a box.

    Lol....again. I read the other thread you're referring to, realslow you really need to learn to take the advice of people who know what they're talking about.

    Also, mtbr must have the friendliest members of any forum ever. In any other forum I've ever been on, he woulda been absolutely crucified for his ridiculous statements here and on the other thread

    Dude I get crucified all the time, mountain bikes are girly **** after what I came off of.

    They are finally attempting to make them better for people who are used to running over obstacles at a higher rate than 20 MPH.

    The lesson I have learned is I need to change my chain and sprockets out regularly so I do not bust the stuff and run quality cranks.

    I am already finding how to use my 53 11 gearing and get more MPH out of it. I ride mostly road and some light trail, my cadence is getting on target finally but most of my problem was the cheap cranks. The flexing of the cranks was throwing me out of sync.

    I will admit the pros blow me away on what they can do on a bicycle but other than that they take a major back seat to a modern Moto X motorcycle.

    I still love it though.

    Look. You need to stop with the willy-waving and the comparisons with moto cross bikes. That's like telling a Tour de France winner that your Ducati is better than his bike. Utterly and completely NOT relevant.

    You are at the edge of what is made in the bike world. You are taller and heavier than most people on the planet. As there are so few of 'us', almost nothing is made specifically for 'us' because there isn't enough profit in such small numbers.

    Regardless, most people don't have 1/10th of your woes in a cycling lifetime. I'm 6'7" and 250lbs and have ridden bikes offroad for well over 20 years. I have never had any of your problems and don't know anyone else who has. You cause your problems. Stp talking about motorbikes, start understanding bikes and sort your technique.

    53-11 gearing is for little girls, you better step up and get a 55t front ring.

    Actually I think you may be right 55 12 rather than 53 11

    Hey guy's I am finally getting it sorted out, FL sucks compared to some places for riding. I live in a college town. I like to ride like 20 to 30 MPH because I am used to going 80 or 90 off road at times on my CR 500 so I make it as fast as possible and throw in some road off road obstacles.

    This town is set up for bicycles, I custom made this bike because nobody sold what I wanted and it works better than anything I could have boughten off the floor. The way I have it set up I can go 30 and skip curbs and do light jumps at that speed in comfort and just cruise.

    It turned out great but I did not realize if you have real strong legs you need a good stiff crank or you loose some good power. Change the chain every month or 2 and I am real happy now.

    The advise I was getting for me was incorrect, the crank was the real culprit. I can select and find the right gear now to get my cadence correct and I no longer have to stand as much to apply power.

    Before it was like driving a car and the clutch is slipping and you cannot figure out what gear to put it in because all the power is being wasted.

    Now I need a good fork and may try longer cranks then probably put a 650 rear wheel with bigger tires all the way around but my stock fork will not allow bigger tires than 40CM.

    I want to start hitting more trail obstacles. They really should build a heavy duty comfort cruiser do it all obstacle bike all in one. No 29 I saw or 26 is like this thing and I am real happy how it turned out, I wish I would have known I needed real cranks 2 years ago. The whole bike would creek when I road even with a new BB and I did not realize I was bending the cheap cranks.

    To everone with the long IRD cranks mentioned above, with square taper BB: What BB spindle length do you use?

    I just purchased a pair of 200mm cranks, but don't know what spindle length to get. BB width is 68mm.

    Thanks!

    I want to know if you have more forward thrust and how the cranks feel on your legs.

    I have been just riding, my bike is working great with the 180mm cranks but I am still waiting to see if anybody has been using 200mm and give a good review, all my problems went away and I am happy, for whatever reason the stock cranks did not work at all so I am real curious about 200's still.

    Happy Easter all.

    I found that swapping my 110 for a 122.5 would give the same chain line, although I actually went for a 127 so I could run as a double plus a chain guard. 127 also gives plenty of extra clearance for the chainstays.
