Re: 1999 Technique Pro XL

I have no idea on a "exact" price of how much they cost....seems like they're going up in price though...

BUT...the ones that you have RJM sound like expert cranks with a square spindle...those don't go for too much money because no one (adults) with money wants to buy something that they can't ride...I'd say 50-75 depending on condition and if they're a full set...

TNT - Yours are a different story...it just depends on the day...I've seen tech cranks go for high and low...There is no Kelly Blue Book for BMX prices, but I'd say like anything else it depends on condition, size (which 181mm is a pretty desireable size), color, and if you have a full set...You're pretty much SOL if you don't have a spindle for those cranks since they are such and odd size...as far as a spider/sprocket, I'm not completely sure...my buddy ran a GT sprocket with them back in the day, but I'd guess that you would have to "bore" out the whole to make any non-technique sprocket or spider to work since the spindle is so fat...

Re: 1999 Technique Pro XL

Ok...here's the "long-winded" explanation on the Technique cranks generations (as far as I know).

There are only two generations of cranks...and I believe they also made mountain bike cranks....

1st generation cranks have a "single pinch" bolt, no Technique engraving on them (they used stickers), and the size of the cranks (in whole numbers) is written from left to right when the crank arm is held vertical.  They had a lot of problems with people over-tightening the single-pinch design and they would break, so they switched to the dual pinch version...these are the LONGEST set of cranks I've ever seen period...

Re: 1999 Technique Pro XL

Second Generation Tech cranks have a dual pinch design, the technique name is engraved on them, and the size of the cranks are written (with partial numbers from left to right when you hold the crank arms horizontal.  Those are the only differences....

Re: 1999 Technique Pro XL

The mountain bike cranks have a smaller, six-splined spindle that is similar to redline flight crank spindles (but not interchangable).  They also use a slotted spider that you MUST have to run the cranks because they have no spot for a sprocket bolt on the back of the cranks...This is my NOS black set (this is the only pic that I have, I will take more pics later to show the difference with the spider...it is a slotted spider similar to the JAD spiders...These cranks also came with Euro bb's....The ones that I have are dual pinch with the name etched into them...

As far as colors, the colors that I know for a fact they made were : Polished, blue, red, green, purple, and this is the only set of black ones that I've ever seen smile

I'm on the lookout for a set of green, blue, and purple Technique cranks, so if anyone finds a set of them, let me know!

Re: 1999 Technique Pro XL

Hey thanks alot mike, this helps alot. I have single pinch 181mm first generations, not engraved. I'm about to clean them up right now. And I have all the parts too. I was told that I would need to bore for the sprocket (not a problem). Thanks again for the info.

Re: 1999 Technique Pro XL

They are actually the lightest forks I've handled...especially when you factor in that they have a built in stem on them....They are made of aluminum and are very light/strong....

Thanks for the compliment...I have seen the Ace frames, but for some reason I'm not really into them...I would have to come accross one for a steal to buy one...

Re: 1999 Technique Pro XL

I am most likely not going to make it to Rockford...I haven't finished some of my new builds like I planned and since Rockford isn't too mid-school friendly, I'm just going to sit this one out, save the money, and put it toward my builds...I will be at James' show in Ottowa though and should be bringing this rig...
