Hi guys

I’ve ordered a new venge in grey which comes as a frameset only so built to spec.

I know Di2 durace is the nuts, but I find it bloody ugly to be honest - any suggestions ?

I'd go with something more modern, but posh looking like the Sram Red eTap graphics crankset.

Is it the entire groupset then or just the crank you are looking for options on? If it is just the crank what are you using for the rest of the group? Personally I think it makes a difference sometimes which brands can work together.

Also, did you want power?

S-Works crankset for sure. Light and stiffest :) What's not to like?

The more important issue is - powermeter or not and if so which one? The sworks crank is great but their powermeter is unproven.

You can put a Quarq together with an S-Works crank.

This is the route I'd go. S-works crank with a quarq spider. Or Power2max if you wanna save some dough.

Hi guys sorry for late reply .. I’ve got vector3s on my SSix so was going to repurpose them and try save myself some $$$$ .. and go for non power meter, nice looking set which is alternative to durace (although rest of groupset will be durace) .. it’s picky I know !

That non-drive-side adjustable cover with 3 small bolts to remove play is a pretty terrible solution imo. Apart from that I agree it's a really nice crank! Alternatively you could go for THM if you have the budget. Apart from that there are no really nice options to combine with DA if you don't want to use a DA crank; well maybe apart from sanding down other brand cranks...
