um there is a year warrenty on the cranks and to my knowwlege it isnt covered...but a new prodigy arm is like $75....and i am sure you can get your crank heli coiled...but you should get raceface diablus if you can from raceface or buy them...they are so strong and look amazing

look into getting a warrenty upgrade to the Evolve DH cranks...

it should be cheap and they offer the metal pedal thread insert...

u should safely call your previous troubles goodbye....

There's a steel washer that goes between the pedal shaft and the cranks. If you didn't have one in there (which will cause the pedal to strip out), the warranty is invalid. So make sure you have the washer.

The Evolve line is the replacement for the Prodigy line, so the Evolve DH is pretty much the Prodigy DH. The North Shore DH is a premium crank, but it has differences that might cost you. The 5 arm spider would require different chain ring(s) and bash guard.

Getting your current crank arm replaced under warranty would be the cheapest option, and you really shouldn't have problems with the pedal threads stripping.

Diablous cranks are really cheap when you factor in what youre gettin. And even if you still find them pricey, you have to rememeber that theyre hand made in New West by a bunch of really nice people.

Nope. Pedal threads are a rather rare dimension which Helicoil doesn't make. Some bike shops have a kit that puts a little steel sleeve in there, which is different than a genuine Helicoil (which is more like a square wire spring) but don't even bother with it. It will break up and fall out in one or two rides. I know this from experience. I ended up getting some Kona Bulge steel cranks. Heavy, but damn sexy.
