Might make a very nice upgrade to an Ultegra build (they work with Ultregra bbs). Cold forged and low q factor. I checked 'em out in a shop this weekend and they look great. I wonder if they would work with the new DA 10 speed stuff...

Yup, they sure do. They've also done well in recent stiffness comparisons (not that I really worry about such nonsense). Excel used to carry them, but they stopped. I'd love to find an on-line retailer.

As they're not as hideously ugly as DA cranks.
I should think they will sell well, when the most common alternatives are considered (Shimano & campy) :-)

You want a nice light crank?

though i picked mine up off of e-bay. light, and seems fairly stiff, not that i could really tell. square taper only, though. nice low key graphics, too.
