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

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 ;)

Is that
c to c
or
o to o (in which case, really narrow)
?

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.
