Fit introduces 24mm spindle cranks

Years ago, Solid Bikes attempted to redefine crank technology by utilizing a larger diameter three-piece crank spindle. The idea didn't exactly catch on, but in 2012, Fit Bike Co. refined the idea a bit and introduced their Indent crank set in a 24mm spindle option. The larger diameter hollow spindle increases strength without adding weight. Fit also designed new sprockets and bottom brackets to work with the new crank set.
