Ok I am unsure about what to use on my bike,

My bike is a fairly basic build,
Fit flow frame (dark green)
Fly pantera bars (white)
Hoffman magnesium pedals (black)
Primo balance rim (chrome ofc)
Shadow hub (10) (sahdow grey ish)
Seventies front hub and primo balance front rim (black on black)
Brakeless
WeThePeople tires
Eastern Stem and sealed headset (white)
Odyssey thermal racing forks (white)

I used to have eastern traildigger crank arms but now need new ones and its either
Odyssey Wombolts (white) or Shadow Torrids (white)

And also whats a good bottom bracket to use?

Would really appreaciate help with this matter as im riding my rubbish cheapo hard tail in the time being

I'd have said get a set of Wom/Twombolts and any BB really, they're all pretty much the same, so whichever is cheapest and suits your frame.

People tell me the wombolts are weak and break easy and I think the torrids look disgusting

twombolts are better by all accounts. primo are probably strongest, don't know if they come in white. i'm sure profiles and fly cranks do. then profiles aren't that strong either. lol, i'm being no help at all in this thread. sorry.

primo or profile are strong. you can just repaint them, the only part that wears off is the part your feet rub on.

shadow is good company, and so is odyssey, but people say the wombolts fold. so go with shadow i guess
