Exactly, people assume that Pro teams always train on the top of range kit. They don't, particularly the domestiques. Ultegra is fine.

Wonder when SRM are going to run out of 7800 cranks?

Given that's 7900, maybe they already have ;)

Haven't seen any other arms than 7800 used either. If the new ones were to be machined like the 7800 are I guess there would be a gaping hole at the end due to the hollow construction?

Probably not too difficult for SRM to get their hands on a bunch of NOS OEM 7800 arms?

The 'new' Dura-Ace SRM PowerMeter crank still uses the 7800 arms. It is a problem. Eventually, they will run-out...

I took 'crank' as the collective, not a reference to the arms ;)

Less flex in the sprint. Definitely acquired from the track.

Wilier: Woah... craziest thing I've seen here! :-)

165 mm is a lot. Assuming his bars doesn't have a lot of reach though, that would make it even crazier.
