so, i've owned 3 sets of claviculas. the first two just have the "clavicula" logo.

the latest one now has "THM Clavicula classic" written down the whole length of the crankarm.

i preferred the old set. no website that I've seen, including THM's, include pictures of their latest Clavicula crankarms with these logos. all the pics are of the previous version crankarm with just "Clavicula" written on them.

Was looking at these on fairwheels website. I wonder how much they wouldn't weigh with fibrelyte carbon rings? I think they look quite good.

Are they on the surface so you can remove them with acetone or so?
Or are they stickers under varnish layer?
or are they maybe etched into the material?

I HATE logos!!! I paid for the product, they are not paying me to advertise it.....

A beautiful crankset that everyone know's what it is without any logo.... now looks semi-cheesy.

I have to agree, adding the word classic is a bit too much. Just without that it would look much better.

Still a sick crank though of course!

Different but the same...the ax-lightness SRT-24s were on our list until I saw I could not remove the embossed ax logo. As they compete with a sponsor that gave us no choice. Other teams WILL allow unlabeled components that are not what is provided, but a logo - DQs them.
