Sheesh Casran, I saw the picture of that big box and almost got excited for you to get the first cranks :D
Nice one on the blue bolt, is it Ti or aluminium? You could do the padholder bolts as well but I think this is more subtle :thumbUp:

The cranks were redesigned into the shape of a submarine. :)

Seriously, Ted is working his butt off on the Subhuman project. I don't foresee we're going to see the cranks for a while. For him I think this is the chance of a lifetime that takes precedence over everything else.

Pm sent, what's going on though? I don't mind not getting the cranks, since I never spent a dime on them, but I'm curious as to what's going on...

Well....I really don't know. Other than Ted is still working the human sub project and it's getting ready to go somewhat soon....and they are getting ready to release some new brakes....other than that....

It was a message for the "testers" to send him your T-shirt size and address. Are there other "testers" on here for brakes or some of their other products?

Not that I'm aware of, but it read to me like there are brake testers - possibly just media like Pez and Adrien though.

Just to clarify yesterday's solicitaion for T-shirt sizes and up-to-date addresses...
Ted is asking that "Crank Testers" respond by PM to the request.
Nothing further @ this time.
Thank you.

Finally some news from one of the Zero Gravity distributors (XX Light bikes).
The Boxer crankset is cancelled in it's current form (and developpedment has been stopped).
There is a chance that a new crank project will start sometime but there is nothing to be expected for 2008.

If this info. is true, it's a bit dissapointing end of the Boxer story and makes me wonder where things went wrong??

Short translation of the following text in German

"Im Lauf des Jahres kamen auch immer wieder Anfragen zur "Boxxer", der
integrierten Kurbelgarnitur,
die ja schon länger als Prototyp auf verschiedenen Messen auftauchte. Das
Konzept wird in der bisher
bekannten Form nicht weiterverfolgt, die "Boxxer" wird also so auf dem Markt
nie erhältlich sein.
Trotzdem wird im Hause ZeroGravity das Projekt "Integriertes Kurbelsystem"
in anderer Form weiterverfolgt werden.
Mit einer Markteinführung ist 2008 jedoch nicht zu rechnen"
