Saw some pics of the new DA crank on cyclingnews.com. That is not a very pretty piece of equipment IMO. Kinda reminds me of the old Mavic crank.

I would not put that extra wide big ring on anything but maybe a time trial bike. It just looks cheap. That clamp on the left arm looks like something for holding on a heater hose. The left crank does not even match the right.

I wonder if the BCD is the same so you could at least put on a 9 speed chainring?

The Mavic 631 crank, with the big polished spider and hidden chainring bolts, is way prettier! I'm still using one with an old Dura Ace BB, but they are heavy.
