i have had a set for almost two years and find them to be quite nice. it would be great if there was a way to use them with outboard ceramic bearings, but for the time beaing i've accepted the limitation of the isis bb. it may be worth waiting a month or so for them to change the decal on the cranks - they will have a thinner one that will allow them to use less clear according to a decal maker i know, so they should be lighter by a good 10-20g...

the arms are about 450g and the bb is about 180g so 630-ish fo rthe combo.

also, realtive to the pulsion cranks, i think they are much better. they feel more solid and definately deflect less under power.

just because i know it's coming, the m5 cranks should be lighter, stiffer and less expensive than the claviculas when they come out according to bram. i am supposed to have a sample or two in the next 7-10 days and can give a first impression when they arrive...

Not quite sure where you are getting your prices from, the ZIPP 300 crankset in the UK is GBP450, together with BB(zipps own) at GBP100 gives you GBP550. The Clavicula on Poshbikes website is GBP640 I think so you're only saving GBP90(max GBP140 if you go with an alternate BB)

The weight won't be any less than your Stronglights. As for the stiffness, you won't notice a big change there either(most bigger riders tend to think the Stronglight is a stiffer crank than the Zipp).

I can't see this as being a step-up, but rather just a side-step.

clavicula's are definately lighter than stronglight... more beautiful as well - that's a winning combination.
