Also, I don't know if it's been mentioned yet, but the cranks will not be coming with rings.


What chain is compatible with no rings?


Is that "chain" compatible with 10 spd no-ring cranks, and if so, will it work for Campy, Shimano, and SRAM?

Look at a bike. Everything has rounded and sweeping lines everywhere. This crank is a very angular, cnc to death, piece of metal. It matches no lines on the modern bicycle. Part of a bike is the artistic apeal. These things look like they came from the TV show transformers. Like they can convert themselves into a campy record crank for biking, but are now in the mechanical killing machine mode right now.

Sorry, I know the "I am getting a free pair" suck-up phase is going on right now, but I think 0G missed the mark with the appearance of this crank.

You make a good point spooky, but then so does Skyleth. I'm fairly ambivalent at the minute, but I am looking forward to seeing them on some nice bikes here and hearing how they perform.

Well, they match the edgy look of the ZG Brakes...
And some bikes, like Litespeed Vortex also have some sharp edges.

I should think they'd look pretty trick on something like the all-black BMC frames, what with the skeleton lugs and all. Maybe put an old Integralter bar/stem on, for even more CNC'd goodness!

You think they're gonna cut your ankles when you get the crank arm rub?

Madcow just posted at FWB's forum that Ted from ZG said they discovered an issue and that production has been pushed back. They should see the light of day in time for Sea Otter '07.

Well...1 day left until the 8 week mark....but....uh...that's pretty much just me counting for fun at this point. Have to wait and see when they will come out.

I guess if I was seriously interested in Boxer, I'd probably go to Sea Otter to check it out as a secendary reason to go this year.
