I love how ugly they are. It proves that you are all about function over form. nice.
Please, don't make them expensive. They seem quite easy to produce. You should make them as cheap as the rotor. that way you will sell lots of them, so mr. ciamillo cat go with the submarine all day long.
There are 2 majors handicaps to succeed to sell a cheaper product, and it's about costs of production that for example Rotor don't have:
-Very very expensive raw material: on the brakes it was already expensive to buy the titanium bolts (made in USA also, not in China), or even the lobe of the cam (Torlon). On the crank, the problem is that Ted is paying a lot of money for just the high module tubes.
-Impressive number of operations. Some additional operations are necessary after testing the prototype. The final price will not rise. Some of these operations should be done only by a very skilled operator, probably Ted himself.
But, as of today, from my side in Europe, and from the USA, the problem is becoming not to have a reliable product, but to supply the demand, because the paid price is still low compared with the cost of production of the 100 first units, and Ted is not able to produce as many cranks a day as he would like.
This is definitely a handmade process, not and industrial process.
