The classics keep on coming from GT Bicycles. Let’s take a look at the new and improved Power Series Cranks!
If you have been riding BMX for a long time, there’s no doubt that you’re familiar with the Power Series Cranks from GT Bicycles. These cranks were a staple in history of BMX cranks. Fast forward to 2017 and GT have re-released two versions of the cranks; chromoly and alloy.
Chromoly Power Series Cranks
Up top you can find the chromoly Power Series cranks. These full 4130 chromoly cranks start out with tubular 175mm arms with sprocket bosses on both arms making them right and left side drive copatible. The arms are attached to a 19mm, 48-spline hollow chromoly spindle that allows you to easily run Spline Drive Sprockets if you prefer. Everything is held tightly together by flush mount bolts.
The Chromoly Power Series cranks are available in 175mm only, weigh in at 28.9 oz., chrome for the only color and a price tag of $129.99 through BMX shops and mail-orders that carry GT Bicycles worldwide now.
Alloy Power Series Cranks
The original Power Series cranks that started it all. These modernized cranks are made from forged 7050 aluminum with steel pedal inserts, sprocket bosses on both arms making them left and right side drive compatible and 175mm length. You can even find a laser etched logo to match the classics on each arm. The arms are attached to a 22mm, square spline, hollow chromoly spindle with 2 pinch bolts per arm and flush mount bolts to keep everything nice and tight.
The Alloy Power Series cranks are available in 175mm only, weigh in at 34.3 oz., chrome for the only color and also only cost $129.99 through BMX shops and mail-orders that carry GT Bicycles worldwide now.
Both cranks will undoubtedly get the job done and will look great on your bike whether it’s a retro rebuild or the bike you’re putting a beating on day in and day out.
