    Lightening Cranks

    I am looking good to by a 165mm carbon crank and install an oval chain ring. First, does anyone have a Lightning crank and what do you think?

    Do you have a 1x setup?

    Oval?

    They're awesome so long as you don't have a BB92 frame. I used them for 4 years on my enduro bike in 2x and 1x. The flip flop spider gives perfect chainline in either. They are crazy light too. They are more of an XC crank so if you're really hard on your bike doing DH runs and big jumps keep an eye out for cracks.
    Keep the Country country.
