    freeride crank

    My friend is in need of a new crank around the $150 range. What do you think would be good for him. He does a lot of dirtjumps, some drops, some (but not much) cross country, and downhill. Weight doesn't matter to him, he just wants something that can take a lot of hard abuse. Thanks.

    Ah grasshopper, I see you are new here. You will soon see that a price limit has no effect on replies. Look for posts asking for a good freeride bike under $2500, and see how quickly someone replies recommending a Foes Fly.

    Go with BMX Cranx. More bang for the $
    The Super T you have is really a very good fork. I'd take that fork over a Fox 40 or a Boxer unless i was entering a fashon contest instead of a race

    Warren, I have about two years of riding on my Prodigy cranks and they have been flawless, I do tend to go through B.B.'s fairly quick though. for the cash spent on them I'm sure they will not disappoint you.

    FSA V-Drive Extreme's are good, or if you want much much stronger without caring abuot weight go for a set of FSA Pounders which are extremely strong but heavy as anything. Either will enable you to use your ISIS bb, or you can go for a 3-piece BMX setup for ultimate strength.

    Just some ideas

    What a bunch of week cranks!

    Steel is a mans crank. Aluminaium is for sissys.

    There are more options if you consider used in the classified. I've seen RaceFace Turbines and Next LPs for around $150 - $200.
