Well, I'm riding the Ciamillo crank now, and for now it looks great. The finish in black powder coat seems the best I have ever seen on a crank.
For now, I don't want to supply large quantities in Europe because I still want to ride more with this technical product.
I have tried the crank at 1300W and for now everything looks great, I trust the product despite it may not complete fatigue test of 20000km. I would ride it in competition without any doubt.
It's tightened to 200 inch/lb with strong nuts.
About Ted's business, I agree that he his unable to reply to 200 or 300 emails a day. Actually it would be possible, but without spending a large part of the day with programming the machines and assembling some parts together. You just need to understand that he's in a R&D step, to recover the situation that was his own a few years ago. As I have spent one week with him at the factory, I'm sure that the R&D step is almost over. New GSL's are almost ready, and even if it's not a weight revolution, you'll see that it's a product that is going to match with the 2014 market standards of the brakes.
I don't want to make my own promotion, but in terms of supply, I suggest to proceed like that:
-US sales: ciamillo.com
-Europe sales: ciamillo.eu
-International sales: your choice
As Ted has not the time and the resources to look after individual after sales service, I advise to ask Ted his availability for US after sales service. For the rest of the world, especially Europe, the after sales service is done in France. http://www.ciamillo.eu

As a certified distributor, we assemble hundreds of brakes a year and have in stock more small parts than Ted has got himself (because he can produce his own parts whereas we need to wait for his production).
So, primary businesses are the followings:
-Ciamillo.com: production, sales
-Ciamillo.eu: sales, after sales service (ciamillo.eu is legally independent from ciamillo.com)
