animal qss #3, 4, 5 if you haven't seen them yet. maybe not toooo similar but features straight forward street riding and a (fairly) varied soundtrack for the vibez

am:pm series is worth a watch too. 3 was awesome if not only for mark gralla's section. not sure if they are up in full online though

and of course the aforementioned voices and tomorrow we work

you should probably watch 90east: sound of the city too

but the uk (and ireland) is tiny and the us is big (like 20x the size??). i think this is what mutinous was getting at

except for standard, pedal driven cycles, S&M, "freed" or whatever, I'm sure there are more

nice, and cheap too! if i ran splined cranks id probably buy one ...but i don't soo...

its coz profile uses imperial measurements so their 22mm is actually whichever imperial fraction is closest to 22mm, which is 7/8" or 22.225

basically, profile is retarded


didn't/dont companies doing pivotal seats have to pay something to macneil or whatever to use the design?

so what you're really saying is we need idiot proofed cranks

at least with splines they won't creak like the old ones.

and splines and pinch bolts is a fine design imo. my preferred style of crank.

48 spline cranks are fine if they tolerance/fit is tight enough (cranks pullers yo!)

odyssey wedge design seems good too, but i think it would be better to not have to fuck around with the wedges.

pressfit cranks with tapered spines seem like a good idea to me, not sure it would work with steel cranks though.

i prefer pinch bolt cranks, ones with splines. but as g mentioned somewhere the bolts can get fucked up grinding on them.

in the end i think every crank design is faulted in some way "the best crank" is going to be different for different people, their riding, mechanical abilities/intelligence.

fyi the park tools torque wrench is just a rebadged and blue painted off brand one you can get on ebay for like 1/2 the price. here in the US the craftsman wrench is the same as the park and cheaper as well but idk if you've got craftsman over the pond
