Strengths:    other than the pedals coming loose, is strong (but then again what good does it do with out the pedals?????)

Weaknesses:    not going thru the whole thing again.

Bottom Line:   
I bought my bike and the first couple rides the pedal kept on coming loose, i tought it was simple becouse the last owner didn't keep up with the bike, so i tight the pedel to the crankset, 2 months later it came out loose again, so i thought a little bit of lock-tite would do the trick. No came loose again, i was thinking about getting a replacement of the same product, thank God i came to this site to find out that i wasn't the only one with the problem

Strengths:    It's stiff and unlike others, I haven't had a problem with the finish coming off.

Weaknesses:    Won't stay tight.

Bottom Line:   
It drives me nuts. I cannot keep this thing tight. No matter how hard I crank on the bolt, it starts to creak and then comes loose within 2 rides. It hasn't fallen off yet when riding but it is only a matter of time. Swithing to Dura Ace.

Strengths:    Not much anymore. Did like the look of the carbon arm.

Weaknesses:    Breaks (dangerous) - see above, hard to clean, not as stiff as other brands (eg Shimano)

Bottom Line:   
This cranks came with my Cannondal CAAD 8 R1000 Road Bike which i got in May 2005. This bike did only 1000km before it was rested until recently (Dec 08) due to uni and work commitments.

In Jan of this year (09) and after another 1000km on the bike the left crank fell off whilst riding. The reason for this was due to the bolt (which holds it on) breaking. I put this down to the fact that it is 4 years old, and was lucky not to come off and was only riding on the flat. I got this fixed at a LBS and again after another 1000km, the same thing happened again, the same bolt broke in the same place.

Having had this happen twice with approx 3000km of usage i decided to head back to revert back to Shimano.

This bolt is very soft and dare I say cheap aluminium and for the same thing to happen twice is not good, I was just lucky I was not under a sprint or climbing as the consequences could of been pretty nasty.

Strengths:    Stiff external bearing Giga X design, carbon looks spiffy.

Weaknesses:    The chrome peels almost instantly off the chainrings (teeth first, then by the bolts, then everywhere else) and eventually off the spider also. Like the other reviewer I replaced the chainrings (with Dura-Ace 7800, awesome shifting) but now I may have to sandblast/anodize the spider also. The chainrings shift ok, but aren't a very good ramped design. I would call the chainrings cheap. I will keep it as a spare but for now I just installed a whole new 7800 crank.

Bottom Line:   
Absolutely horrible chrome finish on the chainrings and spider. Unless you lack sweat glands DO NOT BUY THIS CRANK!

Being the SRAM ***** that I am, I would love a TruVativ Rouleur Carbon Aerobar on my Klein that I am building.

real weight- Truvativ Noir vs Rouleur Carbon?

So I'm a racer, weight weenie and a sucker for advertising. I have last year's Truvativ Rouleur Carbon compact crankset in a 36/50. It's been good- solid shifting, smooth bearings, and overall sweet with the exception that it's quite a bit heavier than the Dura Ace 7800 crank and bb it replaced. ... Read More »

Truvativ Rouleur Carbon Compact Crankset

I saw no reviews on this product in the drivetrain reviews. Does anybody have any input as to the quality and reliability of this crankset. I'm building up a bike and am starting on the drivetrain. I like the external BB bearing idea. I saw the Race Face version at sea otter last year and think ... Read More »
