    I just bought a new built up Neon Bow 24". The seller convinced me to get TryAll cranks instead of the Neon ones because he says they become noticeably flexy after a while. I have no experience with them myself. Needless to say I went with the TryAlls.

    Send a PM to the TrialsIdea guy. He can give you a full review.

    ya. I've been wanting to get some really light cranks for the new bike I'm building, but a lot of crank flex just isn't worth the weight savings. Oh well, it'll be a few weeks before I have the funds to consider it.

    New bike will be pimp :)

    Thinking maybe rockman cranks would be good. Not quite as light as the neons, but they look stronger and are still super light.

    i held them in my hands recently - they are simply too light
    crank weight is weight in the center of your bike, wich makes it less noticeable when reduced...

    do not recommend

    I sell them to lighter riders. like i said, no issues with them, BUT, myself, being 190lbs, I do not use them. I would recommend something a litte beefier. Echo tr maybe or rockman.
