anybody have any experience with Sabin from Carbonlord Cranks? www.carbonlord.com

I e-mailed him about getting a set of cranks. This was his response...
I am the only distributor for this product
which is why I offer a Lifetime Warranty exclusively. I have been offering
Carbon Fiber Components for about 6 years. I generally accept payment issued
in advance as a check or money order or can provide Bank wire information.
Western Union is also an option.

Not accepting credit cards and not having any reviews on this site has me concerned.
Anybody dealt with him before? What was the result?

I've never bought anything from him although I have spoke to him a few times. He's been around for a while, usually this is a good sign. I think this guy works out of his home in Chicago.
He's got 100% positive feedback on eBay............davet

what I've heard it is rebadged FSA. FSA contracts out to Martech (Taiwan) and he gets it direct from them. Same thing is Wayless SuperBlow cranks, maybe previous version w/o carbon spider. If you wanna get review ask at weight weenie board here or on sister mtbr.com; they've been buying 'em for a few years.

Bought a set of Campy compatable cranks in December. I have about 3000 miles on them and they are perfect. They are FSA Pro-race cranks without the decals. The same cranks can be found at Supergo sold under the Weyless name. I have a set of both, the Weyless has the ugly giant decal under the clearcoat that you can't remove. The CarbonLord cranks have a beautiful clearcoat finish without the clutter of decals.

Sabin is honest and reliable. The guy has awesome communication and he will deliver the product within about 3 days via USPS. If there is any problem what-so-ever he will allow you to return the cranks. I had a problem where the drive side crank would not fit onto the BB spindle because the hole had not been milled down far enough on one side. He allowed replaced the crank no questions asked.

This is without a doubt a safe bet. You get a good looking, strong and light crankset for a reasonable price from an honest dealer... Go for it.

I bought a set from Sabin a little over a year ago, I did have a problrm with 'the cranks, called him, sent them back and he got me another set. He'f friendly, honest, great to deal with and has great prices, what more could you want. The cranks areFSA'a without the decals (like stated above) and IMHO look better this way.
