Recently the board software has been updated and there are some known bugs/failures:
- Avatars are currently not being displayed
- Tapatalk connection is currently broken

Those bugs will be fixed ASAP (next few days) as they are unfortunately more serious than expected.

That's the wider weave of the newer Pulsion. The earlier Pulsion had a much tighter, narrower carbon weave pattern.

As for differing weights between the two, I can't answer that. However, the new Pulsion cranks (08, 09?) are significnatly heavier and look completely different (Vulcan, X-Wing, etc).

Thanks!

Are the wider weaved Pulsions stronger then the narrow weaved ones?
Or is there no difference?

I thought it had only happened to my Pulsion but I read a pair of topics which left me in shock.
My replacement crankset is on its way (I guess it's the horrendous X-Wing) but I am not confident about its quality...
What crankset would you advise, considering that I am trying to get my bike under 6 kg and I need light material? (Either way, I prefer a heavier set than being thrown off my bike because of lousy material failure...)

Some pictures of the results:

Sure they are light... But Strong?!

I am looking for a non-drive side crank since mine has failed. I'm sure you have received a replacement from stronglight but in the chance that you still have a non-drive side crank please contact me. Thanks
