What sort are they?

1 pc / 3pc?


If they're unbranded they could possibly be generic 1pc / 3pc stock cranks...

my guess is 1pc or 2pc forged diamondback cranks. but you need to know if that's what was stock on it. if the previous owner changed them i don't know without a detailed description or a picture. if they are stock, you can email diamondback and get the exact specs.

my guess is that it is a one piece crank but on the diamondback web site the new 2003 venom there is a 3 piece. but heres the easy solution to this if your crank goes from the pedal up and curves into the bottom bracket then its a one piece crank and if it has a 3 piece then it will go from the pedal up and there will be a bolt going through it. i guess there is a bolt on two piece cranks there too but then u just take it apart and find out (that is if u r experienced at working with that).

IM WILLING TO BET THAT IT IS A ONE PIECE BECAUSE IF YOU BOUGHT IT OUT OF THE NEWSPAPER I DONT THINK THAT ANYONE HAD CHANGED ANYTHING. BECAUSE A TRUE BIKER WOULDN'T SELL HIS OR HER BIKE IN A NEWS PAPER NOBODY WOULD BUY IT SO IT IS MOST LIKELY A ONE PIECE NOT MANY BIKES COME WITH 2 PIECERS

if you notice a bolt going from the arm into the bottom braket its a 2 or 3 peice my guess would be 3 because not many ppl run 2pc but if it looks like the arms just go right through into the bottom braket its a 1 pc
