Someone was here b!tchin about them a few weeks ago. tirider "Carbon Lord cranks----stay away!!!!!!!" 8/13/03 12:23pm

For what it's worth, I was not so convinced by the costomer's arguement. I don't know how you would determine whether or not a cranks spline was milled correctly. Squeaks can come from many different places. Even though he swapped cranks and the squeak stopped, the noise could be attributed to other things other than the crank. My $.02
Why would you want those for that kind of moneyelviento

Why not get FSA as actually used by multiple Euro teams? Besides when something goes wrong you'd be dealing with an established company (FSA) rather than an internet weasel. Do you think he has the same quality control as FSA would have? Do you think he does product testing? He is just some lowlife in a basement selling $50 cranks at $200.

Besides this jerk had been advertising his crap as "Campagnolo carbon cranks" shortly before Campy carbon cranks were released. When people kindly suggested that term is misleading, he responded with nothing but foul language. Don't encourage him.

FSA's, Profile's, Weyless, Carbonlord's, Stella Azzura's, and most of the other carbon cranks are all produced in the same factory in Taiwan. Nytex Composites is the manufacturer.

The question I would have is the tolerances and the molds that Nytex uses for each customer. Are they all the same? What about the specs for tolerances? Does the customer do any finishing work themselves (rumored that FSA does...).

Try a search for Nytex over on the WW board on MTBr for more information....

As for Carbonlord... I will admit that the cranks look nice but I've read some horror stories about his customer service and that would make me steer clear...
the carbonlord site sucks...sievers11

I can't belive anyone would have bought anything from him, they don' t look like an established business.

I also think their products look poor, or maybe it is just the photos, or maybe just the site or maybe all 3.

"Internet weasel" "Lowlife" "Jerk"?

I think it is you who has "foul language" there.

I'm the only one who offers a substantial warranty, not a limited one.

As far as quality control, you make assumptions based on what knowlege?

Campagnolo "compatible" Carbon Cranks, yes. Or go ahead and get a great deal on Campy's $800 version with 1/8th the production experience of what I offfer, oh and a nice long 2 year warranty. Thats a fine bargan.

Sure....

Have you ever considered soap opera ?

I love the BS coming out of your mouth ahahahaha

hhhhhhhhhhhhhhhaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahahahahahahaha

You get my Biker Fox award !
Nice contribution....CarbonLORD

What BS were you refering to?

Thats fine if you want to pay $800 for a logo on a two year design with a 2 year warranty. Its your money, but you do know you could have 3 Carbon Cranks with a Lifetime Warranty from me with the same budget right?

I dont want your Biker Fox award, but I would like serious discussion since you are such a serious cyclist that you felt it necessary to comment.

Get real, I dont have time to respond to jokes and the only soap opera is the one you create.
Nice contribution....268generation

There seem to be alot of negative comments here regarding CarbonLord's products, yet as far as I can tell, no one making these comments has ever even tried anything from him.

Now I have never seen them and never had dealings with him at this point, so I wouldn't comment at all. That doesn't seem to stop most people in this thread, though - I think any of these comments must be taken with a big grain of salt if there is no experience to back it up.

I'm not supporting CarbonLord per se, I don't know him at all, although his products have intrigued me in the past. I'm only noting that all this negative press is just hot air if no one making the comments has any real experience with the products or even dealing with CarbonLord. Give me facts and objective experience, not impressions and rumors.
campyonly gives the cranks the thumbs up...nothatgullible

Check out this link:

I don't know anything about the carbon lord but campyonly.com say they like the cranks. Even though they are a campagnolo website they give very frank and honest reviews. They don't have a problem slamming Campy when necessary. So I don't think their review of these cranks would be any different.

About 1 1/2 yrs ago I bought a pinarello Prince 7 purchased a set of Carbon crank from Carbon Lord. He answered my questions & promptly shipped me a pair.
About 6 months later, I had a problem with them, contacted him, sent them back & he replaced them with a new pair.
At all times he was friendly, professional & a pleasure to do business with. I would have NO problem buying from him again
