    Dirt jumping cranks

    I'm looking for a set of cranks for my dirt jumper. Something cheaper than Diabolus. I was looking at the Azonic 454's, they're $170 for the set plus whatever a chainring costs. Anyone have any experience with these? Or any other suggestions for a strong DJ crankset.

    my friend is selling a pair for $75, it seems.
    he specifies new in box crank arms,
    but the bbs (he's offering both bmx and mtb) may be used.
    regardless, it's a killer price.
    and they're great cranks.

    I have a set of 454's and am happy with them. Not quite as nice as my Profiles, but still good stuff.

    They take a while to set up though, and most sets I've seen have a slight wobble or warp in the chainring once they are set up. Nothing major, but you can see a tiny hiccup in mine and the chain rubs the guide in one spot when running the larger cogs. My buddies are the same way. But I wouldn't avoid these cranks because of it.

    Hey mosplat, you the same mosplat from S&B?

    Diety's are nice. kinda spendy, but nice. www.dietycomponents.com
    or like FSA nasty boy or X drive good cranks as well. BB's leave a bit to be desired. The Diety BB are biznitchen, very smooth and good feeling. plus theire chainwheels are pretty nice as well. The E-13 Sprokets are sweet as well. I put one on my FS and love it. Plus it just looks mean. I'm not a super big fan of the pinch bolt cromo cranks, but I do own 2 sets so cant complain too much. I guess my main complaint is with the BB. For the most part, they suck. but on the other hand, its really nice when you dont have to use a crank tool to pull em off. Just loosen the pinch bolts and the crank bolt, then pull. One thing that I learned the hard way with my 454's, is that they use a 20mm spindle instead of 19mm as seen on the splined profile style cranks. finding a quality aftermarket BB for the 454 is Impossible. Personally I would go with the diety cranks, heard nothing but goot things about em. you can get em in white and they are a rider owned company and Eric (the owner i think) is a real down to earth guy thats all about supporting riders and the scene.
    Blaaah blaaah blaaah

    Go to DANS COPETITION and order a pair of EURO 175mm Chrome PROFILES for $174.99 and get the spider for twenty more dollars, or run a BMX ring and don't use a giude. They rule all others only want to be like them.

    Ya I already have the regular hussefelt cranks and they are creaking pretty bad. I've taken them off and cleaned and lubed the bb but after a week or so it starts again. Plus the steel insert that the pedal screws into comes out of the cranks when you try to remove the pedal. Anyways I think the 3 pc chromoly cranks look pretty pimp and would like to give them a shot. My biggest concern is the bb wearing out so maybe i'll stay away from the Azonics. I'll check out the Diety's.
