Hi,
Have anyone tried this Grafton Speedstix Road crank arms? Like to know if its a good crank arm?
And what is the weight like?

Thanks for taking time to view. :)

Well they weren't bad when they came out some 15 years ago. Could get them in the popular "3D Violet" to match your Ringle' stem and Moby post as well as your aftermarket brake arch on your Mag 21.

The company no longer exists, and hasn't for some 10 or so years.

They were 366g. Never owned a set but they were highly spoken of in their time. Have a look here...

I used them sevral years on my tribike back in the 90's. Very sweet crank arms. It was the Clavicula of its day. The down side is it requires a square bottom bracket and the tapers on the crank eventually wore caused creaking.

Another issue separate to the creaking is flexibility. Compared to all modern cranks (barring Tune) it will be noticeable if you are a bigger rider.
