Truvativ Elita Cranks: Anyone using them?bikenraider99

I have a couple of questions in regards to these cranks. How is the shifting with them? I'd like to all so know if they're both Shimano and Campy compatible. It seems like some of the reviews on them have mixed manufactureres. Lastly, where do they rank in the all ready benchmarked Campy and Shimano lines respectively?

I have them on my campy 10s drivetrain. They shift well, but it is because the chainrings go from side to side, rubing one side of the derailleur to the other (9 speed deraileur). The black finish is matte on the backside instead of polished. My 170mm crank is the same as a 175 but the hole for the pedal is drilled closer resulting in excess material on the end, unsightly ugly. I would recommend ultegra or chorus (both cheaper).
