That Mavic was the nicest Crank ever, I agree.
Provided you have a gear ratio of at least 4:1 (108"ish) or over you'll not spin out too badly unless you have legs like tree trunks or hammer down 1 in 5's.
Yeah, up until i started riding this bike (my first racing knick road bike, the other one is "only 105" and was built up for me as a young teen before I grew enough to ride this) I feel bad because ive added shoe rub on an otherwise mint set, but its not that bad the mavic logo is still intact.. just some shiney parts at the end.
its too big, slightly, the stem would probably fix that... and it almost makes me feel greedy for building up the klein....
I got my Fsa cranks and seatpost collar in the mail today, i have aDA7800 front mech on its way and the Xtr m972 shadow is on its way, i think ittl be kind of cool. im a mtb man at heart.
the klein should be leaps and bounds better than a slightly oversized steve bauer, with a pump and all, even the avocet
do you think it will make a world of difference? im going all dura ace with some form of carbon fiber seatpost and handlebars. probably the newest gen of dura ace so that i have the double internal cable routing
& @ hamster, watch craigslist, i got mine for wayyyy cheep. I mean dirt cheep. thanks to whoever sold that to me if they ever see this.
