My prototype test combo came in the mail today from Berk. 120g for the speedneedle shape (angled a slightly more level front to back) and 350mm. Really impressive work Berk! Beautiful weave.

That is a fab weight for a combo. Makes it worth the loss in flexibility.

I've had several Berk combos and each one that I get is more refined and nicer. Jure's really honing his skills. It's fun to watch.

Clavicula is here and it's significantly lighter (in WW terms) than the Morpheus. I think I'll be going with the Clavicula ;)

What chainrings will you be using, and what do they weigh?

The Clavicular will be stiffer and is beautiful.
What possible advantage could the Morpheus have? I thought it was lighter. If not surely it's a no brainer.

That's the setup for the NAHBS. That's not how I'll be using it. I'll be doing either 5 or 10mm. This Setup is 40mm. The spacers are made from DELRIN and are extremely light. Lighter than carbon ones. I just want to be certain before I cut the fork.

The rings are fibre-lyte. 78g total weight

I have to look at the crank some more with the bike and see how it looks. I may sand them. Not sure though.

The cranks might be too nice to sand. THM really did a nice job in designing this crank. Has anyone sanded the Clavicula and has pics to show what it would look like? I'm assuming sanding it would take off all of the lettering.

DON'T SAND IT!

They produce a matte finish one for that effect.

Sand it.
In fact, TUNE IT. :twisted:

Donald tuned his Claviculas to make them lighter, you can too. :wink:

I used steel wool on two sets, they came out great. I avtuslly like the sanded ones better than factory matte. The shiny clearcoat is better quality. The reason Parlee do their matte (not waxed) finish like this.
