    ….. on my Kona is marked as a Truvativ Five D. Never heard of this make before, although it does look quite robust and comes with nice rings with teeth on them. 😉 😛

    Are these a good make, acceptable budget or utter sh1te?

    TIA

    Only thing That is Made by SRAM that i have is the SRAM Power Link and it’s class.

    My Dads 5 Thousand Pound S-Works is Shimano you know what everything 😆 :lol:.

    Top End SRAM parts are Class but top end Shimano parts ( XTR=Godzilla) are Class A.

    Let’s try and Keep On-Topic, so we don’t wonder off like last time 😆

    Truvativ make some good stuff… middle of the road I’d say or should that be middle of the trail.

    better and worse stuff is available, if it works I wouldn’t worry about it.

    I’ve no complaints with Truvativ.

    Particularly chainsets, had a couple of reasonably priced ones that have performed very well.

    my m8’s scott came with truvatic carbon cranks, which do look good…

    i wouldnt be boshed if they came on the bike, just would probalys pick something else if buying it…

    I’m always wary of cranks that I don’t know. In 1987, I had a bad experience with a pair of Ofmega ones where one broke as I was out of the saddle on a hill. Seems that the twunts had stamped their name into it AFTER it had been heat treated – other crank had a crack in exactly the same place.

    Eleven stitches in the scalp is enough once in a lifetime, thanks! 😉 🙄
