i understand that 3 piece cranks are better and sturdier...but can someone please explain what kind of shit does one have to do to 1 piece cranks in order for them to break? as i'm about to get my first bmx ever....do i really need to worry about that? or should i save a lil money and just go for 1 piece?

Well........ Yer first bike go ahead with the 1 piece, upgrade later.... My friend broke his one piece, he snapped it right off when he cased a jump, they were real crappy cranks though, but i've never broken any 1 peice. i think they bend easier too eh fellers?

well...my boy got a DB grind with 1 piece cranks and i tried to jump on those and they didnt seem to make any sort of signs of even caring. but i guess i'm only 165. evanc said they would break doing a bunnyhop..maybe he was a smartass...maybe he's 250 lbs.....who knows.....but thanks for a subjective reply hartattack...anyone else?

I'm like 160ish. And I was being a smartass. The bottom line is, they suck.

As usual.... :roll:

They should be fine for your first bike though. Once you get better and start jumping higher, landing harder, etc then go for 3. Good luck!

My friend ripped the right crank arm off his Haro SS Oversized cranks riding off a curb. No bunnyhop, just pulled up, let the backweel fall, and Wham!
