Any updates on the untitled cranks?pk0r wrote:I'll sit together with Axel on Friday to come to a decision which one we like best.
So ultimately it has been a very tough call, in the end the last two finalists in our shootout have come from the same person though (the proposals had not been limited to just one) which however as well sets us in front of slight problems as said user has been sending his suggestions via mail, bit as well as PM in here on the forums. The former may have disqualified him if one would have to be strict, but the latter to us still qualifies him to being a deserved winner (as it still has been a forum contribution which is what has been asked for).
So the Oscar goes to mike and the crank is going to be called AX.Morpheus in reference to Morpheus, God of dreams.
My congratulations!!! Please send me your address and I'll ship out your Nasdorowje cage as well as AX Source bottle!
More info on the crank is going to be leaked bit by bit in the near future. This is definitely not going to be vaporware.. I have been taking a look at our latest drawings and prototypes still today which had just come out of the autoclave. The progress looks promising and is on schedule. We are aiming for a release in spring 2010.
At least AX had cranks before its name. I got the name, not the cranks.
Can't wait to ride a set! When are they available? Will they come in 175mm?

Of course, surely the AX Pythias, whatever that product might be, will be coming out not too long after the Morpheus. Remember that like Pythias, the Pythias <insert AX bicycle component here> can be depended on to keep its word, perform as advertised, and get the job done, no matter the adversity.
Edit: And like Pythias, who, despite the adversity of his ship being seized by pirates, valiantly persisted to make it back in time to spare his friend Damon's death, so too the AX Pythias valiantly persists to get its name attached to the next worthy AX bicycle component for which its qualities so clearly hit the mark.

They came in at 14gr and 15gr on my ghetto scale. Another 2gr for the bolts.
They seem very stiff when trying to bend them by hand but flex enough for a bottle to get in and out. Very nice finish quality as expected. The inside is dull/matt and the outside is gloss/clearcoat. I love the AX embossed in the carbon.
