I had written FSA, seems like they keep pushing the date back....

i just hope the SL-k-force is as stiff as the current line Superlight and team issue cranks. if it is, im in for a nice upgrade, that and AC bottom bracket might save me 70g

The K-Force crankset is $435."

You're getting a $400.00 price on 2004 Superlights?
That's way too much, theyr'e available for $350.00 or better....
I'm more interested in the stiffness too, I'll be curious as to how they compare.

Were talking about the k-force SL, those are going to have an MSRP of at least $500.

Your distributor doesn't have them, there not being shipped yet.

I know we're talking SL, the MSRP means they'll sell for less than that....$435 is Light-Bikes quoted price, as I said :wink:

Talk to Clive at Glory Cycles (cycling@glorycycles.com). I heard from him a couple of days ago that his order of FSA cranksets had arrived. He may have what you want.
Just because you are not paranoid doesn't mean we aren't out to get you.

Just looked in the latest FSA parts catalogue that came out today, no sign of the K-Force SL listed.

K-force was listed with a wholesale price of $325

If anyones interested the Superlites wholesale is $240

I know we're talking SL, the MSRP means they'll sell for less than that....$435 is Light-Bikes quoted price, as I said

With these numbers in mind the SL's will probley be $400 wholesale, and $600-650 retail.
