Verdict:
Looks Good
Ok on Weight
Priced Cheap


Here's one on ebay. $179.99+$10.00 shipping, Octalink 170,172.5,or 175mm lengths available.

If you are interested in the Ritchey Compact crank.. you can purchase it for $125.00 @ www.aebike.com , but I think they only have the 175mm length in stock..

Hope this was helpful!

Aero beats weight - unless you're slow!

Do you definitely need 170's or could you use 172.5? If so have a look at Extralite E-Bones RC. The Isis model bar cranks weigh in at 351g!! New Integrated version which replaces it is claimed at 499, which if you use their Octoramp rings totals 600g Lighter than Dura ace 10!!

The weights on the listings page show weights between 735-765g (length dependant) on the Dura-Ace 7800s.

So unless the Extralites are 135-165g they wont be 600g lighter than the Dura-Ace
Success is how far you you bounce back up after being knocked down

I do not think he means 600g less than Dura Ace but 600g total weight (arms/rings/bb) thus less than Dura Ace. That is 135-165g lighter.

Call Nashbar and get a set of their $79 cranks. This will hold you over till you can find the high end ones you are looking for.
