Even though there is already discussion about Lance & Tyler's bikes, I was checking out the pictures at www.grahamwatson.com, and I noticed something...

Image
Can anyone Identify this crankset - Could it be a prototype of a Time Carbon Crankset?
It does seem like the perfect component for Time to produce :)

Image
There's one of those darker shades of Dura Ace 7800 Cranks 8)

the carbon crank on the look frame, looks like a Fsa k-force with different chainrings. their is no darker 7800 cranks, its just the angle of the light that makes it look darker.

This is FSA K-Force MegaEXO crankset. It has outboard bearing integrated BB design which FSA calls it MegaEXO.

Pretty sure it's just a k-force, you can see the b/b bolt if you look close.

Wasn't there this exact discussion earlier? And the conclusion made was that Dura-Ace produced a few of some other colours :?

If you review all the pictures of Iban Mayo - It is not possible that the light makes every picture of that crank darker.

Oh come on.... look at the front rim. Does Mavic make Ksyriums in a darker colour too? No, it's just the light!

i did not know that YOU came to this conclusion, as i did not read it; but shimano is a pretty standardize company. i have seen no proof of them making a darker color 7800 crankset, have you :?:

take a look at the center, its hollow, it also looks like that in the picture i blew up

Sloping Geometry, Columbus Airplane Tubing. No bolts on seat tube bottle holder bosses.

Less than 1cm clearance between the tire and seat tube! (Note, this is not the exact bike Iban raced - Different chainrings)

Image
Drilled out Derailleur cage. Non Dura-Ace 10spd cassette(Possibly Tiso).

Image
Drilled out Levers! ITM Unika Carbon Handlebar & ITM Magnesium The Stem

Funny how those look like the lighter colored 7800 cranks....how many "colors" does this crankset come in, anyway? :P

Tell me about it!

How many more times will people post this junk? Come on! There is one color, the different looks is from different angles of light reflecting and shadows.

The Seattube looks like it curves around the wheel.. reminds me of some old track bike seat tube design! It has to be a very "quick" handling bike. Question: does Orbea sell this frame to the general public?
