Yo..

Has anyone heard of these? Just come across a set on AU Ebay and wondered if they had a good reputation? They look kinda Middleburney..

I had a set once, nice but chunky.

bought it complete with L&M rings for £6.50 :shock: , I think the rings are still available on ebay.

Used to work for the UK distributor. As above they were really just like Middleburns - 'shed engineering' if you like! Not as good IMHO and even BITD they were silly money.

Chainrings were like cheese though, and we had a number of sets back with stripped bolts in the arms where the spider connects, and a number with f'ed tapers. But they are pretty!

Hmm.. Cheers for all the comments, think I'll be staying clear of these then!

But in case anyone else wants a pop, they're here..
