1 piece


you can pretty much tell if its 1 piece or 3 by the amount of money u spent and the brand of the bike. and what name of the cranks are

1 piece

3 piece is compiled of 3 parts, 2 crank arms and a spindle the crank arms are attached to the spindle by a bolt and some 1 or 2 pinch bolts that clamp the arm to the spindle while others have 48 splines that dont use pinch bolts because they are attached very tightly and the spindle bolts hold it in place

well yea but it seems liek this guy didnt no how to tell a 3 piece from a 1 piece and liek us, all we do is look at it and no if it is or not by the bolts on each crank arm but i was just trying to give him ideas to look at when u cant tell if its 1 piece or 3

yea but thats not the only way to check. u can check by where u got your bike (walmart or a real bike place) the price of the bike (if below like 150 around their) what brand the actually bike is, And the brand of the cranks

You cant always tell by some of this stuff but sometimes u can. if the cranks say like kjhfddsjl you no the brand sucks. if it says odyssey then check if it has bolts on each end. if you still dotn no ask someone at a real bike place

I agree with you, AND I have also seen $300 bikes with one piece cranks. This is an awfully long thread for something that is easy to just LOOK at and tell!!

yes it is.

but the 300 dollar bikes without 3 piece cranks...like the fit complete (old version) have a lot of great parts on there....and seriously...you can get 3 piece cranks for like 100 or less.
