I was pleasantly surprised to see a crank in this thread. Crank looks sweet. I'm guessing its light. It'll be interested to hear more details, like spindle length and diameter and material(aluminum?), if its compatible with current bb systems, etc...

Great, but perhaps they could focus on getting the customer service basics right (and fixing previously unfixed issues) before rolling out new product - lots of history here suggests that if anything goes wrong with the product it will not be plain sailing.

"""This is a BB30 crank with 3 degree arms and extra spindle length for use on non-BB30 with adapters. It has a two part molded in spindle with oversize spline. Although the design is currently robust at 448 grams, we are still testing and pushing the envelope for the next six weeks so we may end up a little lighter still. The core is hollow and was created through the use of a pre-fabbed scaled down carbon core inserted in the final mold. Q is at 149 but is a customizable feature for BB30 frames where the spindle may be shortened upon request on the non-drive side. One of the best features is the customizable length options.. we can do non-standard lengths easily. Another interesting feature is the easily interchangeable spider; currently shown in compact, the spider easily pops off the oversize spline and can be swapped for 130."""

· Mass – 448 g (+/- 20 grams at test completion) // Cranks - BB - Spider

· Interchangeable spider from compact to standard

· BB30 with extra long spindle for use with adapters on non-BB30 frames

· Q-factor – 149mm (customizable)

· Fully customizable lengths

· High modulus compression molded hollow carbon fiber arms.

· Extra wide aero arm geometry

· Customizable spindle color

The first couple of sets are on the road, already logging miles...

My local dealer emailed me those pics this morning. Right after I put up the pics...Ciamillo posted the info that Pez posted on his Facebook page.

Can't wait to see one in person.
