    Well, I don't think any aluminum crank would survive that. In a steel spindle vs. aluminum crank battle, the steel will always win.

    Loose pedals, ditto. Crank will lose. I just had to replace a nice Shimano bike crank because a pedal briefly got loose.

    I didn't like the cross section of the original Venture cranks. They removed material from the edges instead of the middle, which is backwards for strength - you want more material at the outside, and ideally hollow in the middle. The newer Ventures fixed that. Other than that they seem like nice cranks, and I never had any problems with my two pairs.

        Well my two extra sets of dual-holed SHW cranks arrived. I now have dual or triple holed cranks for all my unicycles.
