Anybody ever use this crankset ?GreenFan

I'm still trying to put a shopping list together for my Winter project (new 'cross bike) and have decided on Campy drivetrain for the most part, but was concerned about crank ring options on their 135 standard...while looking around the web in all my favorite haunts, I came across the "TA Syrious Crankset" sold at Cyclocrossworld.com, I'm familiar with the TA brand's crank rings, but have never seen the crankset. Does anyone have any experience with it ? At first glance it looks ideal for my project...

If they are Specialties TA they are as good as it gets. Best Rings in the MArket

I've got a TA Zephyr crank and it's great. It has a 110mm middle/outer rings and is drilled for both 74mm AND 56mm granny rings. The finish is fantastic and the styling reminds me of the old, 80's era Deore/Deore XT.

Does the drilling for a triple cause any chainline problems? I am now using a Race Face crank (so I can run a 36T inner ring), but the width of the crank (where it attaches to the BB) is so wide that when using the big cogs, I have a severe angle on the chain where it leaves the rings.

Any insight into this problem would be great!

Thanks
Jay

Hasn't been a problem yet. Can't remember what BB spindle I'm running.
