Just wondering if anybody has heard anymore detail about the negative mass cranks which are claiming to be the lightest, stiffest and strongest crankset available?

Last I heard it was going to be after June before they were ready, but I will really be supprised if they ever happen. The plan to make them has been around for years and it has never happened. Give www.cyclinginnovations.com a call if you are really interested.

unfortunately, i'm thinking the neg-mass cranks, along with the fly-sports cranks, spada magnesium clinchers, and that crazy light tune saddle someone was speculating about recently, are vaporware, one off prototypes, or ideas that have yet to see any form of prototyping.

I think your cranks will be great and sure to be light, but I myself have a carbon fetish. I wish you were making some in carbon. :cry:

If I remember correctly the Neg Mass were supposed to be sub 400 grams total for the crank/BB assembly. Besides being carbon that was pretty appealing.

Hey Superlite,
I sent you an email about your speedplay inserts. No answer, what gives?

I never received it, or I would have replied. Try it again, my email is funky at times.

Don't bother with Neg-mass. They are'nt even a real company.
