Looking at several crankset options for new Cannondale EVO build:
1) Sram red 557 grams $494
2) Cannnondale Hologram SL BB 30 492g $650
3) Sram Quartz 778 grams $1995
4) Sram SRM 825 grams $1799 on sale $2745
5) DA 7900 with BB 725 g
6) Dispense with Power Meters above and wait for Sram pedal version

No Question the Hollowgrams. I have 2 sets of SL's and a set of Originals too. Can't wait for release of SI SL2! :thumbup:

Cannondale CAAD 10 Team custom paint
Cannondale 2009 Slice HiMod

or a clavicula at $1100?

just a question for the enlightened, the upcoming SI SL2 is said to weight 480 something grams complete.. but that is w/out BB, right? since if it was WITH the BB, weight would be the better than the clavicula: pictures here put the crank at around 320 gr, plus 90-110 grams for rings and bolts on a compact, plus ~60 for BB... and also no complaints re stiffness

I didn't think there was ever a second thought about the crankset for an EVO build. SiSl2 or SiSl.

Maybe I'm mistaken about the pedal. It's LOOK that bought the start-up that was developing a power meter using the pedal rather than BB.
Still in development. Rumored to be out this year. Little weight penalty and independent reading from right and left sides. I guess all current power meters have significant weight penalty. Any one recommend best weight savings in this area?

look pedals are already out, but are hard to come by even at the bargain price of +$2000

$2000! Ouch! must weigh under 20 grams at that price vs. 100 added grams for SRM, Quartz etc.

I am building up an evo and went with a hollowgram, with a view to putting the new quarq in it. new sram cransk are very light too and can be had online for much less than 500

I've got an EVO, and the Hollowgram SL's work exceptionally well on it. Their stunningly light, and very stiff. No doubt go for the Hollowgrams if you want pure performance, but there is something to be said for having something different from the norm. If you like that "no one else has this" feel then a nice pair of Lightnings, or Claviculas would be pretty cool.

If you decide to go for the Hollowgrams, consider waiting for the new Hollowgram SI SL2. In my opinion the SL2's are the best cranks in the world right now.

Here are my Hollowgrams on my EVO:

I have the THM Clavicula M3 on my R5CA and they are great - if you buy them make sure to buy both spiders so in the future you can switch between 110 and 130. They come on and off the bike in minutes.
