Maybe this will become a nice alternative to AX and THM: http://www.m5-ligfietsen.nl/site/EN/_m5__Lightweight_bike_parts/Crankset-and-bottom-bracket/

M5 cranks weighing just 238 grams + 120 grams for the bottom bracket.

I don't know if it's going to come out, since that is dated October 2006 :|

I've emailade M5 a few months ago and there was a pretty obvious they won't launch it on the market them self. iI it's going to be, someone else has to buy the development from them and launch it on the market, probably a company with better economical resources..

Just fitted but not yet ridden due to injury - 476g with chainrings. A review will follow. I'm really happy with the way they look on the bike.

I was hoping for more reviews before the December release of the bb30 version. Oh well I guess I'll just have to try it for myself.

December came and left and still no bb30 Morpheus. Does anybody know when this will finally be released? It's been quite the wait.

Is it possible to buy the standard (130bcd) Morpheus at all yet? Doesn't sound like it.

Does anyone even have a standard? Interested to hear about reliability / longevity under an 80kg rider...

Cheers!

Someone has got to know Nils, who could get some info. I don't know if I should wait or go with the Clavicula. I'm trying to be patient :twisted: lol
