Interestingly, quite a few Ultegra parts - must offset the weight losses due to the cranks :-)

Also, that is a compact crank ??

That's funny...that crank looks like it's never done a pedal stroke, ever. Notice how the chain rings are completely unblemished? Wonder if it still hits the front derailer like before.

That bike has never been ridden. Have another look at the pic from the other side of the bike. There is a zip tie! Which makes me think that something is wrong with the crankset?!?! Why does it need to be held in place? just for the photo?

Maybe Im wrong......

The frame is claimed to weigh just over a kilo (fork approx. 350 g). I think the wheelset and Ultegra parts add up to it.

Beautiful crank... Best looking crank at the moment IMHO (Record 07 is also nice though).

good eye with the zip tie.

If you look at the top angle view of the cranks it does look like it would hit the FD. Follow the crank arm from the pedal to the crank center. Notice the part with the cut out, I think it was supposed to be on the inside of the crank arm so it doesn't hit the FD.

The part of the crank arm not cut out is almost flush with the plane of the outer crank ring. So anything that hangs beyond the plane of the outer crank ring will hit, like the FD.

easy to see from this pic.

Could the zip tie be there to hold the cranks level for photo's?

I usually find (read always) that the chain is enough for this!

Bike looks completely unused.

That bikes to orange to be that clean

But it looks like its from a team presentation with the shot with Trent. But I dont think he's received a new bike recently...so it seems like a promotional shot

Just on the shot of the left crank, does that look like its actually attached in any way apart from the zip tie? Might not be a bolt in there, might just be resting :?

I would agree with the if it were a 'normal' production crank. Just a thought as with these cranks anything seems possible.

Can you be competitive racing with a compact crank? wouldnt you suffer in the sprints, I mean the top sprinters use 54 chainrings dont they?
