Does the Ares Ill Bends have issues?
« on: April 23, 2018, 05:42:33 AM »
Years ago I bought a Quamen mobile Armz. I got sold by its "lifetime warranty" only to find out that the company has closed. The Mobile Armz were were really light but after 3 years the cogs started to crack. Switched the arms, same thing happened.


Now i'm planning to by Ares Ill bends..Anybody here know if there's an issue with it?
I'm looking at the 135 or 145mm version..

I've had mine since 2014, no problems or issues.
Very strong crankset.

There were rumors that they made a V2.. So you had yours since 2014, maybe it's a v2 already.. Thanks for the replies guys.. I appreciate it, indeed..
