hello. i wanted to get my boyfriend a 3 piece crank for his birthday but i'm not sure what i should get him. i was hoping someone would help me out here.
i'm looking in the price range of around $150, a little over or a lot under 150 is fine, as long as it's a good quality crank. i just need a few good options to work with.

the only one i know of is the primo one from the primo website. i've heard it's good, but is there better? something that's light but strong and all that good stuff.

also, the whole size thing, the primo only offers up to 180mm, my boyfriend has an inseam of 34" and a lot of sites say that you should get a 190mm crank
size for that. does it really matter?

any help would be wonderful. thank you!

ok first off he probably wouldnt ride a 190mm crank that is very long and the longest he would ride a 180mm and the shortest 175mm. now there are lots of cranks under $150 that are superb.

RNC Aluminum(pic wont come up!)
139.99
Demolition Chromoly or Aluminum
139.99
Snafu 4130
119.99
Odyssey 41 Thermal
144.99
DK Chop Stix134.99

i took the prices from www.danscomp.com there you can find things easily, and i would say either demolition or rnc(im trying to get rnc)

also heres the websites

RNC- www.rncmfg.com
Demolition- www.demolitionparts.com
Snafu- www.snafubmx.com
Odyssey- www.odysseybmx.com
DK- www.dkbicycles.com

they are much different.
the Rocker is the low class industry crank...basically for those riders who have no mon mon and just want to have a 3pc set up on their rides.
the Stroker however is a real decent crankset.

hahaha good point, a bad set of cranks can really mess up a relationship :lol: hahaha but yeah that could be a possibility so he gets what he wants, unless it the whole surprise present thing your trying to go for
