    Aerozine Crankset any good? (aluminum axle)

    They look good but I'm a bit worried about the aluminum axle.
    Anyone know anyone who broke one?

    My cranks have been fine with 4-5ft drops on my 575.

    Do you have the aluminum axle or steel?

    I wouldn't be worried about an aluminium axle, many cranks have them and are still very solid. LXs for instance
    Check out my SportTracks plugins for some training aid software.

    Actually very few cranks use aluminium axles in the standard external bearing 24mm diameter. Most all use steel or sometimes titanium. Al flexes 3 times as much for the same spindle size as steel.

    The only ones I now about that are aluminum are the fifteen G (Hive), Specalized 30mm and the Aerozine. fifteen G and Specialized are both 30mm axles. aerozine has the 24mm.

    Unless you are a trials rider (or know how to absorb energy as well as one upon landing), I would stay away from aluminum axles. The Aerozine cranks especially are known to flex and I've heard of a couple of them bending or cracking in the last 3 years. Granted all cranks can be broken or bent under the right circumstances, but these ones don't look particularly promising.
