yes, they are quite a bit lighter, ≈ 35-40 grams

and about the BB30 adapter, why wouldn't it fit? the morpheus is just as any other BSA-crankset.

I may end up adapting the THM bb30 to the Morpheus. AX sent me an email saying they can't produce the bb30 at this time. That's the most concrete answer i've heard from them

Just get a Campy SR11 titanium, and be done with it. It will work. No drama. And still only about 640 g complete (or whatever for BB30 version).

Just get your bike built, and when the snow melts, start riding it.

Only if Campy had come in BB30...

Superslick cranks and adaptors - not very elegant.

Get a Cannondale crank Gums!

Couple questions about SR 11 Ti:

Is it 10s compatible?

Is there a Fulcrum version? Can't see a Ti version of the RRS and want 130bcd...

Having had issues with aftermarket WW cranks, Id buy a Fulcrum/Campag 640g 130bcd crank... So quick.

Just been told by AX that there's a 6-9 month wait on the Morpheus. I cannot wait that long.

If anyone has a brand new set, preferably with a THM BB30 adaptor, I have cash waiting - I want these for my new build and all other options have fallen through...

Rich if the wait is going to be that long, why not just go with a Thm crank. It's almost as light, a bit less expensive, and we know it's one of the stiffest cranks available (While we haven't tested the Morpheus yet, I don't expect it will score as high as the Thm in deflection testing.) It's been well tested through years of use and Thm easy is to deal with.

From my experience with them...if they're telling you 6-9mos then you can assume at least 9mos.

Sorry, I mis-quoted - it was 4-6 months... but I'd still expect 9 from what I've read...! :shock:

Certainly that's fair enough. What about a QRC2 then? Or while maybe not as light a carbon Dura Ace? (assuming the Baum is Shimano)

Options now are QRC2, Vuma Quad or Rotor 3D+ - like the Shimano carbon, but want to run 52/36 so need 110bcd.
