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.
