I admit to being a sad bike pimp and having blown too much hard-earned on shiny alloy things [especially pedals: "who are you - Immelda Marcos??"]

But ti cranks are annoying: they look shad; they've got to be flexxy and the difference in weight is probably less than whether your shoes are wet, or what you'd save with a pair of latex tubes [given the radius of a wheel as opposed to a crank, the importance of wheel weight must be multipied many fold.]

Rolling weight is important, but hundreds of quid on an ageing crank must be viewed as gluttony - or annorexia.

you forgot to mention that these cranks in particular are prone to breaking ;)

sweetwings were fair from great as well... kinda ironic that the funk frame hes selling is making less than either of the cranks.
