Very nice, but unless you get the K force mega exo your crankset will be very heavy.

I have no first hand experiance with it, but it is very stiff, not quite DA stiff from what I heard, and almost identical weight. 756g for a 172.5mm

this one...

before ditching the limited frame... we tried the compact version of this in the frame, and I was able to get my heels to clear.

If I still end up with rear end problems, then ugly yellow stickers here I come.

If these fit your scott like they are supposed to, then I would say there is something wrong with your record setup :?:

I'm debating this or the Truvativ/Bontrager's. (The same.)

Cost is less for the Truv/Bont., but chainring quality probably suffers.

Anyone seen either...??? Reccomendation... or should I just save for the DA's??

We shall see... I have them on order and will have them next week. I also have a 56cm 585 waiting in the wings just in case as well.

I'm on vaca out in Breckenridge... so I'll be carving all week, and then building my superlight next week.

Hopefully it will be Door #1 CR1 Limited I'm sitting on (and if it works, I will eat all previous whining)

Door #2 Look 585
Door #3 CR1 Team with the awful yellow decals.
