    Race Face never made a 4 Arm Next Crank - Did they?

    Reason I ask is watching E-Bay for new cranks. (I'm still a square taper guy... but that's a different topic for abuse 'k?)

    Came across the following auction.

    http://cgi.ebay.com/RACE-FACE-NEXT-L...QQcmdZViewItem

    And either a) It's a crank I don't know about. b) It's a fraud.

    If someone took some carbon stickers - ala motorcycle shop and some clear coat, with some old turbines... it might actually be able to pass... but this didn't look as professiona.

    Any clues?

    The only Next cranks I've ever seen have all been 5 arm. That looks like a Prodigy XC crank with some crappy carbon stickers put on.

    I imagine you've seen this beauty.

    Fraudulent. The real cranks did use carbon weave stickers but only on the outside of the arms.

    The stickers on these 4-arm cranks are really, REALLY poorly done.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    Fraud. Those are clearly prodigy cranks. The Next LP's were only five bolt and have a slimmer profile besides the obvious 5 arms.
