More info needed. This looks lighter than a Clavicula.

I already thought the M3 was a step in the right direction but I really like what THM did here! :beerchug:

Did I see it right? THM replaced the alloy spline clamp in the left crank to carbon?
THM M3 was a step into right direction but the weight increase was not.

The M3 wasn't supposed to be lighter.

The new one is called Clavicula SR and will be shown at Eurobike.

How much does it weigh?

I don't really care for the lock ring on the M3, it looks like this new crank uses the same lock ring.

5 bolt circle. Soooo 2013!

Seriously, looks great, but with so much weight behind the new 4 bolt 'standard' (Shimano, Campagnolo and FSA), won't 5 bolt look quickly outdated, and (if the performance and weight hype is to be believed) seriously outclassed in performance terms?

I agree...5 bolt looks outdated now...

I personally do prefer 5 bolt, of several reasons.

One of them is stiffer crankarm/chainring connection.
Better load distribution.

4 bolt does look modern today, but are it better?

Eventually the consumer will give the answer. Remember the mtb sti shifter from shimano?

I don't think the consumer will get the choice...the top three manufactures will eventually faze out the five bolt...

its really the preload adjuster. non-drive arm has 2 bolts to clamp down.
