    160mm strong crankarms?

    Any good suggestion for strong 160mm crankarms?

    I"ve looked around and only found FMF 5-bolt 160mm crankarms - and they don't look so strong.

    suggestions??

    BMX cranks? Profile racing comes in a 160mm flavor and is very strong.

    I don't think you'll find anything other than BMX cranks. Aluminum BMX cranks in that length will be made for the little guys and won't hold up for someone more than 100lbs. Profile would be the best option. What's the reason for the short crank arms, are these for a little guy or gal?

    if you go the bmx route there are much lighter cranks then profile but if you do get profile cranks get the ti spindle its like 80 bucks i think and it a half pound lighter
