a good 3 piece is better ie primo or profile, NEVER EVER buy a cheap set of 3 pieces, as they will snap, (my £60 tubular three pieces lasted like 2 months, my 1 pieces lasted 4) and dont buy three piece forged either they are way too heavy, but a good set of 3 pieces is the best by far

aluminum cranks-cold forged

3 piece is way better when i started getting good i was bending 1 piece cranks in a week also 1 piece cranks can weigh close to the same and sometimes more then 3 piece

3 piece cranks are far superior, its only logical. After all if an object is being put through inverse torsion from both ends, with a leverage of around 175mm, it is inevitable that the object will bend or deform, the 3 piece combats this by spreading the load.

Re: Crank Sets

One peice or Three peice??

a hard decision to make...

Naturally, it all depends on what YOU are comfortable with, can afford, and how you ride....

If you ride smooth, and land smooth, it is not necessary to buy Three-peice, but if you are a hard rider and are always hard with your bike, three peice, or perhaps even a decent two-peice will suit.

I have no idea what your budget is like, so, if you are looking at gettin three peice, ill give you a list with prices fom low to high, i will try and convert them all to UKpounds, as ur profile says you are from the UK....

cranks

i think it is advisable to buy a good 3 piece cranks that is quite expensive from a reliable manufacturer. i used to ride 1 piece and after bending them switched to a 3 piece and i really felt the difference. i ride quite hard but lesser riders who i know find riding 1 piece almost the same. i still advise you to go for some good expensive cranks that will last you ages or a bad one that will last you 2 months or whatever???

i reccomend primo for cranks.
