Looking good...

Especially for light weight issues concerning cyclocross / touring bikes & parts.

a new integrated crank/BB from Shimano!


Should be somewhere between Ultegra and Dura Ace but the BB should be 105! Weights 885 gram for 175mm crankarms - a little bit too heavy but maybe the weight can be reduced with a DA/Ultegra BB!

I wanna like it, but it looks like somewhere between Altus and Alivio. It didn't have to be lighter than a standard bcd D/A (though it could've been), but it would have said that they were taking compact seriously if it had been between D/A and Ultegra in weight. Sora, but did I mention Acera-X? :evil:
