I installed some deitys this past weekend, well I'm never again buying bmx style cranks. i dont care how much stronger they are, the fustration to install them just isnt worth it.

and deity should make some kind of instructions on how to remove them. they could have put some thread on the inside of the crank arm so you could use a crank arm puller. would have made my life much easier.

back the bolt out a little, then hit it with a hammer. Profile is the same way. once you get the hang of installing bmx-ish cranks, it'll be easy. plus, FSA makes a bottom bracket with neither cup being fixed, so that makes installation a lot easier.

BMX style cranks are hella easy to install. Just make a press out of two pieces of 2x4, a nut and bolt and 2 fender washers. No chasing or facing or any of that bullshit that should be done by the manufacturer.

I weigh 250 and use Truvativ Holsfeller cranks. The day that I brake them or feel them flex cause the suspension didn't take the impact, I'll let you know. :wink: Azonic, Deity, and Profile(and maybe 1 more) are all the same basic design...same BB! They're all tapered from the BB down to the pedal. They're all Chro-Moly(as far as i know). It sounds to me that people are basing their opinions (and just that...Opinions) on what they decided to buy. Stick with whatever cranks are on your bike untill you brake it and then post a pic of it here. Aceman, ps. i didn't vote in this stupid poll.

Who f**king cares, theyre all the same. Tubular cromoly cranks. Theyre all the same, prolly all made at the same factory by the same people.

I feel ya. Nowadays I just pay my LBS to do it for me. It can be very fustrating, but now that you got them on your bike you'll learn that thay are better than anything you ever had in the past and you'll be happy and forget about all the fustration.

Bah on all this.

95% of everything available is unnecessary clone - here in the world of marketing where people can be convinced they should elect W - they can therefore be convinced of anything!

Like I said - where were all the clones until MTB Street showed up? They weren't necessary because BMXers aren't nearly the fashion whores of MTBers...

The majority of EVERY kind of part we use is EXCELLENT, yet people like to have opinions and preferences, so we get retarded threads like this one.


It is an opinion, but is formed from experience and a modicum of intelligence, that I believe Nothing is better than Profile. There might be something as good, but its nuts to hear some people claiming they need something stronger - tip: Profile makes about 8 different kinds of arms and at least 2 BB diameters.

The truth is people break stuff because they are beasts or they suck or, the most common, people dont bother, or dont know to setup their bikes properly. 7 out of 10 peoples suspensions is setup SCREWED, and 8 out of 10 people that put a wrench to a bike overtighten the shit out of everything leading to broken parts.

I am certainly not always right, but I try to form my opinions based on performance, not word of mouth or trend following. Deity may be just AS good as profile, but thats not why people by them.
