Here is a pic of Phil's ride with the new prototype of the Campagnolo Record version of the SRM that I thought you guys might like to see.

Awesome

Says record but hope they offer it SR Ti spindle based since they are going to charge a lot of money compared to an FSA based SRM... or other

Need to know the inner/outer BCD too but price will be key...

I thought I had all my gear sorted out and had long ago given up on a campy based SRM but nope here it is in pic....

Awesome

Does that spindle look extra large? BB30 Campy Cranks?

hard to say if it's a new bb30 version or not. it looks like there may be a triangular cutout or something right by the spindle on the arm that is not there on regular Campy cranks. it's hard to compare to stock cranks because Campy would normally have an integrated spider. when comparing the pic to off-the-shelf left cranks, i would say the spindle is probably 24mm. then again, Canyon uses bb30 shells. who knows??
the spider is 135bcd, as it's pretty clear those are stock Campy rings. nice that they kept the 5th bolt hidden. i wonder if the bolt goes into the arm at all (probably not, would be hell to calculate slope of the meter)

If it's not available in standard English I will not be impressed.

And a SR Ti edition? Seriously? It's going to be expensive enough as is!

I was thinking SR Ti because to make it better than the current offering/price it would simply have to be lighter for the money.

Only so many people will pay for brand vs numbers.
But SR 11 is the lightest group out there and if it was the lightest SRM out there.....

Interesting that the name on the cranks reads 'Speed', yet it has CULT bearings. So, it is neither Record or Super Record but something unique. Wonder if given the electrics involved, 'Speed' is the working name for the new Electronic groupset? Some sort of display integration with SRM would be great such as a gear indicator.

Judging from the chainrings, it also runs Campagnolo BCD.

I concur that the spindle looks very large and almost BB30, but there are no decals, and given the somewhat 'Production' rather than 'Pre Production' look of these, I would say it is just an optical illusion as surely there would be a decal proclaiming it?

What is the hole for just forward of the spindle?

There is clearly some cool (and expensive!) stuff in the pipeline from Campagnolo in 2012. Oh, and some not so cool (have you seen those new wheels?!!).

Canyon doesn't use BB30 shells. Canyon Aeroad uses Press-fit.

They're finally offering something that Campag fans have been screaming for since the very first SRM.

In no way do I see a Ti axle, or lack thereof, and weight being deal breakers here.

However to keep the price short of anything that would bring a tear to your eye I'm thinking they might have to forego the Ti axle and we will all have to 'slum' it with a steel one (which is A ok with me).

That larger appearance got me wondering too. But like someone else said the Aeroad is "pressfit" - so I checked myself and yes the frame is a BB86 pressfit (meaning won't work with 30 mm spindles).

Second, I think what distorts the view a bit is we are used to seeing a crank spider surrounding the spindle and the lettering around that spindle - we generally only see the std right crankarm in pictures of the component or of built up bikes and with that there is a larger mass of carbon there. This right crankarm really is a left in terms of appearance....Check out this Canyon link - then scroll down to the black and white closeup picture of the left crank and BB and I think you'll agree no BB changes for Campy. http://www.canyon.com/_en/roadbikes/ser ... ad-cf.html
