Thanks for the info and early purchase offer.

Will there be a Quarq spider?

"The crank is one of the largest losses of power transfer"- I'd be interested to see data on this, both comparative and absolute.

What I would like to see is the attachment of the spider to the crank arm. Lockring and I would love to see the spline. Is it a design that may work with a Quarq already out there?

I have a batch of spiders being run and will show the 110, 130, and 135 (all a little different).

I am working on the power meter requests too but Charles is right.. not yet.

That's a stunning looking crankset and great to see it being brought to market. I'd love to see what it actually looks like on a bike. In time we'll see no doubt :D

Looks nice and I like the sleeker design better than most. However, my original T-shirt is still holding up quite well so I think I'll hold off. :lol:

It certainly has not.

Members here have enough cynicism in them to not buy something hook line and sinker just because someone on the internet says this is the best thing ever. Especially given Teddy's(Hi Ted) track record when it comes to customer service and product availability.
- Zipp rims will break if you look at them too hard
- R-Sys wheels will spontaneously explode
- The ZG crankset will never, ever exist
- Everyone needs Lightweights, even if they're fat and old
- Parts actually made of metal are SO 10 years ago

Laff. I'll have to show Christian this picture next time I see him and see if he remembers taking it.

Just tell him it was at The Big Bend Brewery and Herbert was the photographer.

PS My t-shirt, free Zero Gravity brakes are still doing awesome too. I'm sure just as well as my cranks will as soon as I get them. :wink:

Weight change...

The rev 2, as they're working out the details dropped 70 grams... The power of the almighty circle. Another take away is that you should be clear that these are a product that are still developing.
