its a hypothetical situation probably asked by a pathetic person, so in actual fact its probably a better use of my time writing this reply than it is to actually think about that question. no offence obviously.

oh and we all know that the best crank is as follows: profile evolution BB, Profile Ti Spindle and Profile DJ crank arms.

what does that mean???
ok the european bb isn't as strong as the american bb, but it's much more easy to fix it.

oh and I would go for the oddyssey cranks, but nowadays every bike co is making cranks...the flybikes and the federal cranks kind of look like the profile cranks, but are nicer

Ok when i said they suck for bmx i meant that they are not very strong in several respects such as bearing life and strength, also they can be irritating to fix, if for example you bash you BB and dent or ovalise the BB itself, this will result in the internal thread being totally messed up. So i guess that Euro BB's are fine for the majority of riders as long and they are smooth eg dirt jumpers and flatlanders, but you could run into significant problems if used for heavy street etc.

Another downside to euro BB's is that they CAN come loose more frequently than american BB's so couple that with the fact that they are undisputably weaker and more prone to damage this means that maintenance will be alot more frequent.

So i guess they are fine for some riders but maybe not so for others. If - like me - you enjoy strong parts which never have to be fiddled with after you install them then i think american BB's are still the way to go. Oh and with the profile evolution BB now on the market, intallation is just as easy as euro BB's.

I guess it comes down to whether you think the weight savings and ease of install is worth it considering the loss in strength.

Sorry that was a bit long.

Yeah, Snafu is practically Poverty with a less obvious name...I'd say Primo because I like aluminum cranks. I have always run these with no problem and they are affordable.

All of my Solid products served me well. Solid is damn good. Get Solid HL. Light, and nearly indestructable.

personally i like demolition, but outta ur 3 id choose solid for sure over all solid hella lite is far beyond the profile ss and odyssey 41. it is strong(which lives up to all solid products) and lite!!!!! i mean lite as lite as race cranks whcich is unorthodox for solid
