I tried to find some background information about bicycle parts sold in the nineties as "Effe ti light bicycle parts". I found 9 speed cassettes (campa and shimano) and a nice looking crankset (one piece crank arms and chainwheels). Can someone help me out with further infos about other parts Effe ti made? Some information about the company would be interesting as well.

One piece crank and chainrings? Thats crazy, what do you do when the chainrings wear out?

Easy, throw the whole thing away :mrgreen: Seriously: the idea is really too bad. the only reason to make such a crankset is saving weight. I too think it's useless for regular use. When i've seen the crankset I knew I need it. I have two cassettes from Effe-Ti, super light and certainly not very durable. So the crankset is a perfect fit...

Still: I do wonder who was behind the company, what other parts they made beside the crankset and cassettes. Any ideas?

Here some additional pictures. Weight is 501g for the crankset and 109g / 110g for the cassettes. Any ideas regarding the company Effe ti?
