VCX Nimbus cranks

Hi there

My thoughts on the new VCX cranks (Nimbus):

Lately I have been using a pair of Quax 145mm cranks (which I had lying around from a QuaX Muni) in my Trials Uni so I could learn to do some crank rolls (they've got a nice big chunky/wide arm which I think makes it easier to stand on the crank). I found the length (145mm) a bit too long so I was thinking in getting something slightly shorter ones (as I am also working on my Trials skills). I've noticed that Unicycle UK is selling now the new VCX (nimbus) cranks in a wide range of lengths. I've got myself the 138mm cranks and I have to say that, as far as I can tell, they are great cranks and I think they are quite good for standing on them when trying to do cranks rolls and other crank based tricks (I am still trying to master them!).

I've noticed that the ISIS interface in the VCX seems to go slightly deeper than the previous Venture II cranks and their fit into the hub seems much tighter (good news in my opinion).

With this in mind I have also bought a 125mm pair for my 36 Oracle: the hub is a bit worn, and the 125mm venture II cranks (practically new, they originally came with the Oracle) I was trying to fit back into it (after using the KH spirits for a few years) were bottoming out and were too loose to ride without the risk of damaging the hub. I have to say that the new VCX cranks fit nicely and tight into the hub. So if anyone else have the same problem with their hub/cranks they might want to give these cranks a try rather than replacing the hub...
