    i want to buy try all cranks too, but my opinion...can i mount a acs,or must i buy a metalhusk, to use a freewhell on the crank?! and how good is the processing, i mean are they strong enough, not so fucking gay like the echo cranks...

    In my expirience, if you can get the FW on, if you can get them on the BB, and if you can get the pedals in nicely, they are very nice and suprisingly durable cranks. I've hit the bash many HARD times and its still going strong.

    Just be damn sure you've got the threads engaged properly before really wrenching on it. Putting the White Industries FW on my Try-All cranks was a bit of a challenge. As suggested, plenty of grease. Or, as I used, some good copper-based anti-seize compound.

    I was a 20-18 and I went to an 18-16, which felt great. 17 and 15 are just bad , give 16 in the back a try it should feal good.

    The bash on the tryalls is the coolest and the cranks are awesome you'll like em, except fitting VP's on there is not really a possiblity unless you own a grinder then it's fine....:bigthumb:

    18-17 is the shit

    No, you gotta take some sand paper, wrap it around the threads and really give em heck for a short while. THEN wrench the FW on slowly. If you cautious like me it should take a couple hours, literally. THATS JUST MY EXPIRIENCE. I cant speak for any other try-all cranks.

    The bash is AWESOME. Really strong and cool looking. About the VP problem... there is no problem. Just tighten the pedal to a bench and take a regular cheep hand file to it - takes about 3 min each side of a pedal.

    pedal fit?

    Why are there posts about pedals not fitting? What's the problem? Is there interferance between the cages and the arms? Thats the onlt thing I can figure out from these posts. Arethe arms just so darn fat that the end of the cages hits them? I'm just curious.

    the longer the crank, the more leverage, the more leverage the more power you can get out of your moves. Shorter cranks will spin faster though.


    For the pedals hitting the crank. Tryall cranks have this bulge that goes down the length of the crank. The vp cages go most of the way down to where the pedal threads into the crank. cuz of this, you have to shave off a bit from the end of each cage so that it will clear the crank.
