anyone?

would think they'd be more popular, esp. on the ww forum!

a pal is going to order them and we're interested in knowing of anyone's experiences.

the ability to swap spiders is terrific. would be nice if other mfgrs. would adopt that feature.

I got a set with the compacts and rings from praxis.
Super super stiff, they look real kool and they are pretty narrow
I want a set of semi compacts or I might get a std spider and rings as I'm hankering for a bit more gear inch.

Awesome cranks

I'm using a set. Don't have a lot of miles on them yet but so far I have been impressed. Installation was amongst the easiest of any crank I've tried, about par with Shimano, easier than SRAM and campy. Spider options really put this crank ahead of any other ww option, even with the marginal increase in weight over the classic clavs, but without the fragility.

The finish is also first class.

Fairwheel just had a batch go through do you mustn't have been paying attention.

I like mine, you can order from starbike or Hibike. They can take a while.

seriously considering these. I really like the ability to use with the 82,351 different BB setups these days. :evil:

of course I'd have to sell one of my sets of vumaquads with the multiple sets of chainrings, BB cups and bearings first.
Speedplay is the devil!
