    bendin cranks!!!help

    i have been bendin cranks severly i bent the stock one swaped another one in and after a few jumps it bent and every jump after that i could feel it bendin much easyer they are bent too, it's like the letter "y" and it's the obtuse angle of "---> y", so i swaped fer a beefier crank and that hasn't bent yet but i won't give it long,
    so what are some real strong cranks i could get???this is a one peice crank also
    Note:this is all in one evenin

    Do you know what the dimensions are of your current bottom bracket? Mountain bike cranks won't necessarily work on a bmx bike...

    Your either gonna have to do one of two things.

    1. Purchase a higher quality BMX crank kit

    2. Purchase higher quality bike that was designed to take the abuse you are dishing out.

    I doubt that. One-piece cranks and mtb cranks are totally different in design and dimensions.

    BTW is English your second language?

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    He asks because you're terrible at it.

    I think a picture is necessary at this point...

    You should be working on your English homework instead of riding.

    I don't know... how about a picture of the cranks and bottom bracket in question? That seems like a pretty reasonable request that anybody with logic or common sense could have deduced.

    oh...nope...!? No response...? Gone back to PBike?

    Have to agree here, a nice pic of your killer BMX (kiddie bike) bike with its "MTB crank" and BBracket would be swish, thanks.
