some of those primos do not have the steel pedal boss inserts....so make sure the ones you buy do

you know why they are so cheap???

because they are the old models that suck ass(i still think the new powerbites suck and met many guys who hate them too now that they rode them) they dont even have the steel inserts for the pedal bosses so they strip out easily(the new ones with the inserts slip after a while) and no one buys a 185 unless your like 6ft 10in or so tall

yep, what federal said.
you only need long cranks if you race, (or are really tall) short cranks are much beter for fresstyle, personally i am going to get some 170mm when my cranks what i am running get toasted (hopefully that will be a long time though)

why do you want some new cranks rule? whats wrong with the ones you have got......the colour not cool enough or something?

the cracking noise happens to almost all 3pc cranks...its normal...they are just "slightly used"...when that snap and you bust your nuts on tour top tube, then you know there is something wrong with your cranks.

probally nothing.

cranks make noices...don't worry about it...im sure you will know when they go bad...in like a year...maybe and i stress maybe.
and as i said before...you should just paint your cranks if you want them blue...im not TELLING you to so don't come back with oh F you infantry for being a stupid dictator...but you will save money...beside that whole thing with the powerbites old model...

hahahaha :lol: thats good man when my crank was creaking i thought it might be my pedals, since they were bent and only happened when i came around to one spot, so i bought the pedals then kept riding and it came back(oh yeah couple days after that i bent those pedals) so i bought sealed bearings and modified my unsealed crank and the creak was still there so then i noticed my crank was bending and made a creaking noise, and it was a forged crank, so i bought the new crank and noticed the old crank spindle was bent too and the creak went away but i kept riding those broken pedals and the noise came back so bought new pedals so damn crank and pedals did both

is it easy to put sealed beasings into unsealed pedals?...because...then I will just buy unsealed pedals now and then put in sealed bearings (cheaper that way)

only if it works with out screwing up your pedals

i bet its possible but i dont know i modified my unsealed crank to a sealed crank i had to do some grinding and cutting(chainwheel bolt wouldnt come off) but id say its possible i am going to try with some of my old pedals with blown out bearings to find out if it is since i thought about it a few times
