If you are interested

http://planet-x-bikes.com

No quoted weight, shimano only and £275 in the UK.

No idea if any good, so don't blame me if they are too heavy or fall apart etc.

I'm not a big fan of carbon cranks, but from the picture these do look very nice. :lol:

Yes, and given that I have a shimano equiped bike I'm a little tempted.

If I buy (given lack of money not too much chance but you never know) I'll post weight and opinion.

Can you explain what you think is wrong with them?

Carbon Lords full carbon cranks look quite different. These look just like FSA to me.

But its another "full carbon" with octalink compatible.

Joel-I never said there was anything wrong with them. I just feel(and this is strictly my own personal opinion) that carbon fiber in certain applications does not make much sense. For example, if the new D-Ace cranks are lighter and stiffer than any other carbon crank out there, then what exactly is the point to carbon cranks besides looks? And they are also more expensive. I'm not trying to be sarcastic, I'm simply throwing this question out there.
Something like a carbon fiber saddle or brakeset, where there is signifigant weight savings makes more sense to me. Just as long as the products that are being manufactured in carbon do the job just as well as the components they are replacing. I guess that's my argument, but this is the weightweenies forum. We are here because we dig lightweight components.

These guys advertise in Procycling. There add claims they weight 450g (cranks only), which is not to light.
