forgive my ignorance :D
but am i right in thinking the difference between CBR and RSR is that the RSR have the groove milled into the inside face of the arm?


RSRs are massively milled out in the back, so yeh :)

I've never noticed flex in any cranks, but when I put back the E-cranks on my bike after months of commuting with M900 the other day I felt a very noticeable feeling of flex.

It didn't feel bad mind, kind of like suspension in your cranks!

Sweet - didn't have to go too deep after all. If I snap one, Scant, I'm going to hold you personally responsible for putting bad mojo on me.

I'm pumped about getting these - When my ARC-AS gets back from Spectrum, it's gonna get dressed to the nines.

By the way, the seller is a money order guy. What's up with money orders for e-bay purchases? Anyone have any experience doing this? Seems like a pain in the ass and semi-shady to boot.

Just to add to this, I ran a set of E cranks for 4 or 5 years with no problems, including dirt jumping and hitting some drops that snapped my foes weasel frame in half.

I had a set of E's, and abused the hell out them. I'd probably still be using them if some c*nt hadn't stolen the bike they were on.

I know where Scant is coming from though. If I was the only person on earth to have a genuinely crappy experience with something, the fact that the rest of the planet was always pleased with the same something wouldn't mean a damn thing to me.

The word in question is meant to be read in a cockney dialect, thus rendering it significantly less offensive than usual. :wink:
