ZHI cranks

Has anyone tested ZHi cranks for muni or trial?
I consider buying some, since they are pretty lightweight. Not sure about the durability, though...

Never heard about ZHI before After a quick search on the internet, it seems like bike cranks (160mm to 175mm). So strength aside, it will be too long for trial with a 20 inches uni.

It may be possible to use them for Muni if you like long cranks or Muni with a big wheel (29/36). But at the price I saw some ZHI cranks listed, you can have some QX ZeroQ or KH Spirit for less and get strong cranks (with double insert & disk readiness for the KH).

You're right, they would only make sense for 24 inch trial or breakeless Muni. Unfortunately I got the idea stuck in my head to get 160mm lightweight cranks for that, which eliminates every Uni crank I ever heard of. As for the price, all of the 160mm's who weigh about 410g or less are at least as expensive (TryAll, Rockman, Echo...)

Speaking of Echos, I saw a pair on ebay today.

Hijacking this thread...
I ride 150 cranks and have been looking for 150/170 or 145/165 or similar 2-hole versions. 150 for most rides, 165 for muni and technical climbs. 137/165 KH won't work. M41 makes 3-hole 117/138/159 so 20mm spacing looks possible.

Let's call it 150/170 - does anyone know if this is available or can be made? My guess is the leverage applied to 165+ makes 2-hole longer cranks subject to snapping? Any thoughts?
