I was missing the PPB but ths is nearly as good. Plus I like the Q&A on ebay.

"No one ever won the Tour De France with their eyes only".........no one ever won the TDF with a crappy broken crank either.

Yes, but you can feel FAST if you ride with this!!

(Or, alternatively, you can be dead. Very dead...)

Ask him a question, I did.

Dear elden-sama,

Is there a guarantee on this utter rubbish.


Here's the reply
"older men lose their muscle mass. i doubt they can break a crankset. maybe 50 yrs ago. thats a maybe. feel confident to bid!"

Yes, like possibly, "Are you Sarah Connor ?"

I wonder how many drill bits got broken during the wrecking of that crankset.

Post subject:  Re: This is bad...

If I fitted that I wouldn't be using mine. They'd be screwed uptight shut anticipating the sound of a snapping crank.

As with PPB, I cannot believe anybody could be so deluded as to think this is a good idea or in some way aesthetically pleasing. He can't even use a pillar drill in a straight line. Shameful lack of anything approaching craftsmanship. Really offensive.

Going for a lie down now.

I don't know if I should laugh or cry at this. I suspect laugh as I could get very upset looking at how he's murdered this crankset. Maybe we should start a government online petition to have him locked up. It must be easy to get 100k signatures for this sort of engineering massacre?

If you were to ride that mech and those cranks together - you'd be the one in a box!

I wonder which would break first. I like the cranks but then again I also like the mech....................
