Basically - the title says it all. I've got a new ViAS frameset with the OSBB that I'm going to build pretty soon and I'm wondering what do to with the crank. I currently own the power2max type S with the K-Force Light cranks (I've chosen them because I'm using 180mm crank arms). I was thinking about upgrading to power2max NG and changing the crank arms in the process. The way I see it I got 3 options:
- I can keep my power2max and the K-Force Light cranks and use the crank with the spacers on each side of the frame
- I can change the power2max for the Rotor 3D+ version and get the 180mm arms
- I could get the S-Works cranks in 180mm (although it's nearly impossible to get in Europe I guess, they discontinued making them) and change the power2max for the Specialized one
I kinda need the powermeter so getting a crank without one is not an option. Don't really want to spend my money on something else than power2max too, I'm super satisfied with their product.
I created a poll too, maybe I'll get more replies that way.
I'm using the same configuration as I would on the new ViAS (this is the BB30 frameset with aforementioned cranks); I didn't really pay much attention before, but seeing the bikes built without the spacers, being cleaner overall makes me wonder if I shouldn't do the same on a new bike.
I don't really have complaints about the K-Force Light cranks, they look nice and are stiff enough for me, it's just the aestethics of the non-drive side.
If you are really concerned, you could get a BB386 outboard bottom bracket for the frame instead of using the OSBB bearings. That would fill the gap better.
Also, I thought I read in one of the other threads that the new P2M NG doesn't actually fit on the new S-Works arms.
According to power2max, the crank arms will fit. (If I understand correctly all S-Works cranks fit the NG)

I might end up staying with my current setup if I won't find anything I guess, but I still have more than 1 month to even start the build. The idea of painting the aluminum black seems interesting, but it doesn't really solve my problem; maybe Rotor cranks do, but I can't find any real test/review of them.
