Feels solid but still light, good chain retention (I'm running just the ring and a clutched derailleur, no chain guide), easy installation and removal without a crank puller. BB seems solid, and is also easy to work with. A great value compared to some alternatives, and looks good as well.
Spins well and is perfect for my set-up. However the bolt holding the drive side crank arm on comes loose after several rides. It did it a few times after I first installed the crank then a few months later. If you check the torque on the bolt occasionally (like you should do regularly anyways), then the crank is awesome.
