I find that it depends a lot on the type of bike or frame you're building with. For instance the ZG brakes looked beautiful in my eyes on my SPIN. Same thing for the Clavicula cranks. On the other hand both those components wouldn't look good on my Fondriest.

Of course it depends on the bike. But I just don't like the shape of the Clavicula, so I think it doesn't fit any bike. But it's just my opinion :D

I heard they were planning on releasing them in red because the timing of the initial crank release will coincide perfectly with NASA's first manned mission to Mars.....

...... in 2012 :P

It doesn't matter. I can't ride anyway....just had a vasectomy. :cry:

Damn, doc....
This crank wait thing is bad for our health, I guess.

I've had 2 heart attacks (1 month apart, December 8 and January 12) just waiting for these things. Prognosis looks real good, but that was a scary time.
Maybe by the time I'm all recovered they will be in my mailbox....

Very true, Lee. I wouldn't joke about that kind of thing. I was scared.
But I will be fine, with work/medicine/etc.
Thanks to you and Luc for the kind words.

And now, back to the ZG release-date lotto! :wink:

All the best mate, make sure you take good care of yourself and cheers to a full recovery!
