    Hone cranks?

    Anyone got some abuse in on these yet? I know they are an LX crank w/ a slightly beefed up spider, tell me something about durability.
    Thx

    Anyone have any experience with the Hone cranks? I'm debating if I should go w/ these or '05 Shimano XTs (already have a set on my SC Blur 4x). I'll be putting these on my Santa Cruz Chameleon set up for street/DJ/BMX riding... I have older XTs on there now and I'm looking something easier to work on and stiffer w/o spending a boatload. I've seen the hone for about $140 w/ shippping and the XTs for about $200 with shipping.

    So far so good. Couple months of use on my RFX. Some drops, lots of hard riding. No creaks, no problems. Very stiff. IMO best bang-for-the-buck on the planet. Always been a fan of Hollowtech and now Hollowtech II seems like a great evolution. I think they outperform cranks twice their price.

    I've got some tubular cromo FSAs w/ BB that I'll let go cheap if you're interested. 3 months of use - 1/3 price ($65)

    Best $131 Dollars....

    Stiff, light and so-far durable. I've had them on my RFX for a few months. Handled all I've thrown at since. I've bottomed out on a few urban flat landings and bashed 'em on a rock or two.

    Don't know if they're the heaviest - I do know that they're not the lightest. I ran them on my SS for awhile with good results, and for the price...

    Quite a stretch to be spamming your tank-heavy cranks in a thread about light cranks.

    Go-Ride.com:
    Diabolous $310
    Saint $299-$309

    JensonUSA.com
    Holzfeller $236 ($203 crank + $33 bb)
    Diabolous $310
    Saint $320 msrp

    Hone $165

    Shall we talk about the weight difference between Diabolous/Saint and Hone now too? How about the durability problems with ISIS bottom brackets?

    He's local and cheap. I mean the cranks are cheap. I mean they're at a good price.
    But he's also slow - I've had my bike built up for almost 2 wks now.
    And so far so good w/ the hone cranks - the E13 bashguard even mounts up w/ no dremelling required (unlike the 1st gen hollowtech lx cranks they replaced).
