Speed holes, questionable reasoning, square tapered cranks, and dash of crowdfunding. I think that’s everything you need to know.
These cranks, dubbed the Z-Torque, are a “modern” attempt at rehashing one of those crazy ideas from the 80’s. Back then, these bent style cranks where marketed by P.M.P. for $140 wholesale.
The crazy angled cranks are supposed to increase leverage by increasing the length of the crank arm while still keeping your pedals in the same position. Confused? Just hop past the break for the video…
A $75 contribution nets you a pair of these unique cranks. At that price, it might be worth picking up a set for that extra special touch on your town fixie/ss rig. Can’t think of anything better than this or a leather top tube mounted 6-pack holder to impress the local hipsters with.
