It takes something pretty funky to out bling some Revs 8) Retro bling cranks cant take repeated 5G landings sadly. Titanium is fricking amazing really.






A new FAT Ti Eddy with these cranks hopefully one day :P

Mine arrived yesterday but had an iffy weld, spotted by another RBer from the photos on my build thread, so were posted straight back to the dealer this morning :?

A replacement set are being posted out tomorrow though! :xmas-big-grin:

info:

my new ones came with a Stainless Steel 14mm crank bolt.
the older set with a 10mm Titanium crank bolt.

when I questioned this with ExtraUK, they stated that Cane Creek had a few reported instances of tough and stuck bolts with the Ti model. They have switched over to a Stainless Steel jobby.

Less Ti ... boo
More reliable undoing ... hoorah

Cane Creek consider the weld issue “a post-finishing blemish, and not a structural concern” :roll:

They’re sending me new ones out regardless which should be here on Monday :xmas-cool:

So the saga continues....

Went to fit the chainring properly this morning with a torque wrench and copper grease... and promptly snapped the heads off two of the ti bolts!! :facepalm:

Luckily the broken ends came out easily with my fingers, so not a catastrophe, but still....

Beginning to wonder about these 'flagship' cranks.
