Hi all,

I am sitting here in a a happy mood, i just 'won' a 600 ax crankset and pedals (with blue straps) for £45 - does anyone know if this is a good price?

If i never fit it to a bike, i will put them on my dressing table and look at them daily and - droooooooooooooooool!!!!!!!

you gotta love them.

Hope you all have a good weekend - as good as mine at least!

....the AX brake stirrups were in my opinion the best looking as well!

I already have the brakes but i need hoods (hint hint). If anyone has a spare set i would be interested but not at £50.

I've found these a close match, fit Ok and comfy. And at the price worth a try.

Just an indulgent post - my Shimano 600 ax cranks and pedals - with blue straps, arrived today. I think i will sit and look at them for a few hours. At some stage later i may polish them too.

Don't tell the wife - she will not be happy!!!!

600ax crankset is nice yes and £45 with (the essential) pedals is a pretty good price imo. Thing that normally spoils it is imperfect painted finish so I'd want to polish them too, which i am willing to do for you as per your pm.

Brakes were pretty cool too as were the seatpost and stem, which is my favourite quill stem of all time....well one of them.
