    Improve it to do what? Go downhill faster? Go uphill faster? What's wrong with the current cranks? Too heavy/too long/too short?

    Without knowing what you are wanting out of your bike, it can be hard to tell you what too change (if anything).
    I don't crash, I just have slightly uncontrolled dismounts!
