These cranks were nice and stiff in the beggining. Manufactured in North America.
The cranks after a few months of regular riding just began to fall apart. The cranks are not comparable to Raceface quality that I have come to expect from the company and that's alright everyone is allowed to make mistakes. As for this set of cranks I would make sure you stay away from them or if you do get them start calling customer support before you begin riding.
