    Problems with Truvativ

    alright everyone. yesterday I bought a 06 kona. it has truvativ rukiton crnaks. and the original mechanic didnt tighten them enough. so they were floppy and I couldent ride my bike. so today I took it back, they tightened them up really well. but its like, if I pedal the left crank arm like... moves foreward. it only moves once. but when I stand and dont pedal, it moves backwards. It feels like it is loose, but it isnt. any one have any ideas ?

    The bike is two days old. Insist on them taking the cranks apart to see what the problem is. If it happens again, insist on new cranks.

    That's wierd... So I see you went with the Kona instead of upgrading the p.bike?
