Kooka I-Beam Rasta Crankset & Rasta Chainrings: 175mm 44/32/22t EXC
Kooka (short for the Australian bird, Kookaburra) is known for their short run of high quality, high bling factor mountain bike parts in the 1990's anodized era. This is a very rare and sought-after Rasta anodized version. It features very bold colors of red, yellow and green after the Jamacan Rastafarian movement's preferred colors. The rings are the original Kooka rasta rings, with a green spider and green chainring bolts.
This model is also referred to as the I-beam crank. This the 2nd or 3rd generation crank, which has fixed the non-drive arm cracking issue the 1st gen cranks had. Kooka added 2mm of material around the taper on the non-drive arm to add strength. They also have the milled arm ends (which lighten the arms and keep them from looking bad when they scrape) that the 1st gens did not have.
Excellent used shape! The colors on the arms and rings are vibrant and not faded. Arms have minimal scratching and almost no heel rub. The main area of scratching is near the pedals. Arm ends are barely scraped up. The chainrings have lots of life left, and no missing teeth. Aside from the usual anodizing chain wear on the teeth, the rings look great. The chainring bolts look great, and the spider is nearly perfect. Tapers and threads in great shape.
