personally i would get hollowbites or profiles.

and for a BB just get w.e fits your bike.. there is not much of a difference between them

1-all BB's are the same,basically Enduro bearings with different design hardware (color as well) so basically find the cheapest...Find a 22mm, I use the Primo...works fine for me.

Why I voted primo:
-Fly's. Annoying. 2pc based.
-Twombolts
--Yet to be tested,but if they are anything like the V1 wombolts (yes there was a V2 just not a press release, the V2 was a bit beefier at the spindle boss) then theyll fold like a t shirt. However the spindle bosses were beefed up on the Twombolts so you should be safe. BUT
--2pc design. annoying,and the Twombolts use a 15/16" shelf,so youre limited to the chainwheels you can use.

I use the hollowbites. THeyre nice, 3pc design is a bonus. Also theyre 22mm,strong and most chainwheels will work. I havent found one I wanted that doesnt work
*I use mosh method,so the odyssey's wouldnt work,its a 22mm bore*

also the primo's use Pinch Bolts,Splines tend to develop wobble.

But not proven when compared to Profiles. And the warranty on Profile is second to none. Best cranks going. Have only changed the shape slightly in 15+ years...that says ALOT! Fly and Ody changed their cranks 2 tmes ALREADY...not good.

What are the differences between the Profiles and the Hollowbites
Profile= Tubular cromo 48 spline cranks w/ lifetime warranty.

Primo= Aluminum forged cranks with square spindle and pinch bolts.

They ARE the best 2 cranks out...but I trust Profile after 25+ yrs riding. I have had 3 issues total with them, and that was in 15yrs of use. And I have only bout a pair AFTER I sold a set on a complete I sold. Every set I messed up(3) Profile had in the mail a replacement part in 24hrs..

Hmm going by what you say Matrix it seems I'm going to have to go with the Profiles saying you only had 3 issues with them in 25+ Years riding is pretty impressive. I'm going to get the profiles thanks for your help +Rep

I noticed there is quite a few profiles on Danscomp what are the best ones from them to buy it does it matter just get any aslong as its Profile
