they're decent. dianne's brother has one, you could always change out the chainring.

If youre looking for an upgrade I would recommend it. But if youre in the market for something "pro" i should say. I would get something else.

I wonder if youre stock crankset is really at fault for the creaking, or if the cranks or pedals were installed poorly.... maybe improper crank torque, or not enough grease on the pedal threads?....

I had the same creaking problem when I had Sugino Messengers. I was told by my local bike shop it was my gearing. at the time I rode 49x14.. I then switched the Messengers out to Sugino 75's and the creaking went away. It may be your gearing man..

I tried cleaning/greasing/cleaning and re-greasing again and again, but it didn't work until I had new cranks. I don't suggest Messenger Cranks or anything 130bcd for a big gear.

I was on a 48/15 maybe that was the problem. Now im on a 46/16 even number. Who knows. But either way I love my set up now
