Classic 50.4 BCD cranks, like the TA, Stronglight 49D, and others, are still sought after by randonneurs and cyclo-tourists. These cranks offer tremendous versatility since chain rings from 28t to 62t fit. They are also light and have narrow Q-factors, or tread.

While the Grand Cru 50.4 Crankset looks like a classic, we have made several important improvements. They are cold forged from 7075 aluminum alloy. The rings are thicker so they don't flex as on classic cranks. The outer rings have modern shifting aids such as ramps and pins, so shifting performance is much improved. All stainless hardware with allen head nuts/bolts. Includes aluminum machined dust caps and BB bolts. Dust caps function as self extracting crank hardware.

Grand Cru 50.4 BCD Crankset

Excellent product

Second order. Works great, looks great.

Works Great

Simple and effective. I’ve had them through so much in the snow, mud, and rain. The inside gear is great for a bail out on the steep or deep stuff.

Warranty action is great! Sheered off crank arm! Broke off while pedaling, nearly hit by car/fell

Update: VO is replacing the crankarms under warranty, they were super quick to reply to my review and very helpful. Never needed to deal with Velo Orange warranty process before but it’s been easy and better than expected.

Original review: I was pedaling up a small rise when the drive side crank arm sheered off and cracked FAST causing me to hurt my legs and nearly fell in front of traffic. I was shocked to see the crankset just broke right off. I’ll be following up with VO about a warranty replacement, but I’m not sure I’d fee safe using it again. Otherwise have LOVED this crankset, have an IRD Defiant set that’s nearly the same (only difference is BCD) but really was hurt today and it could have been much worse. I’ll update here once I can get a hold of VO to see if this will be replaced as defective.

Campeur refresh.

Just installed 165 mm cranks to replace the 170's that were a place holder. Fit and finish are excellent, my shoes now clear the front fender. Easier pedaling with for my legs and 51 cm frame. Used a 116 mm BB that allows 4-5 mm chain stay clearance. Previous reviews have sorted front derailleur issues. My 12 -26 cassette shits smoothly with no shift pin interference. My TA crank was 40 grams lighter but had a little flex, probably in the chain rings. A fine updated product and a good value.
