CRANKSKINS CLEAR FILM
I’ve owned a pair for a long while until some pikey stole the bike , and they only lose a tiny bit of finish on the edges of that surface. But now they can be! I also use a old sliced tire for a downtube protector. I love mine and recommend them to everyone that I ride with. Worn cranks is a sign of pride? But its like taking off a bandaid, you just gotta rip it and break it in. Wow, pretty harsh comments being thrown about here! I would not be caught dead with thoes on my bike.
So, to demonstrate the crankskins, you put them on SLXs? Once installed, the clear film is very hard to detect on a darker paint job. I don’t get it. I bet the company making these are sitting with their head in their hands!! Why don’t many people have it? This seems like a collosal pain in the butt!!
Terrafire Jan 8, at 0: Its definately an interesting product but the fact that no two brands have the same shape of crank makes it difficult for them to fit properly, ie. I bet the company making these are sitting with their head in their hands!! Because it falls off after about 2 rides and makes your bike look tatty.
It’s vilm really noticable What are the means of delivery? Maksimbike Jan 8, at They look ok from a normal viewing distance, but up close you can see the irregularities.
Crankskins – Is your crank wrapped? – Pinkbike
I’ve been rocking a pair for a while and they are definitely a conversation starter, and they’re also fun to slap on your friends’ bike when he’s not looking and then see how long until he or his girlfriend notices. I would rather just raw and polish the surface of my cranks though if I’m honest. The motocross industry has been doing this type of product for the last 10 plus years and its ridiculously popular, maybe it will catch on for MTB.
I agree, why are the graphics so cheeeeesy? They do offer a clear one if you’d read the article. If your bike is not brand new, you will also need some degreaser. It may not be the next invention to make you faster, or keep you safer, but what’s ever been wrong with looking nice? Tons of people make plastic protection. I also use a old sliced tire for a downtube protector. You will need to go to their website and follow the links to their instructional videos on youtube.
Vrankskins just contradicted yourself. Do you do a clear one so you can’t see it Heli tape!! fim
First published March 31, 8: Why spend hundreds of pounds on spangley new cranks and cover them up with somthing that looks so cheap and nasty? Worn cranks is a sign of pride?
Crankskins – Is your crank wrapped?
However, I always have had “shoe polished” cranks after riding the same set for a while. Day 1 Tech Randoms: The finish is tough on those cranks, the edges are the ones that go first, but its minimal. Im going to buy myself a set of cranks that has the bank chasing me for over a year, then cover them up with a 99p sticker so people think im riding a set of bargain bin ones!
It’s clearly not 8mm thick. Another friend of mine has it installed on a lighter color frame and it is slightly more visible.

If graphics aren’t your thing, you can still keep your cranks looking mint. Wow, pretty harsh comments being thrown about here! Thats the biggest bullshit ive heard in a while But now they can be!
If I stick anything on my bike its going to be a cool sticker from a sweet place I rode my bike, a brewery or a rock band. Either way, when applied properly it looks similar to a clear bra on a car.
RavineRiders Jan 8, at 6: Whether it’s from crashes, shuttle wear, or nice abrasive mud, the nice shiny parts we pay for end up looking like mangled pieces of metal in no time.
I love mine and recommend them to everyone that I ride with. Care to explain why rikcombee?
