They're basically a modern titanium version of the Sweet Wings cranks. Very tasty indeed!

modern art. Almost to good to fit and use in a British winter. Also not that light. Add 80 grams for a BB =480 then if you have a spider = 30 gm=510. In the video they compared them to one makers carbon crank. Which is not like for like at half the price of these Ti. I still like then

My issue is that since I ride a lot locally (peaks) but crank arms look awful from all the rock strikes. I’m running x01 on my Kingdom hardtail and XTR on my Evil and they are a fraction of the price and I don’t mind smashing them to bits. But I’d actually feel bad doing that to these Ti beauties.

Great video 8) Scary how flimsy the carbon cranks are :shock: 5G at impact landing to flat for a 180lb rider !! Basically if you are a big chap these are worth the investment and they are stiffer than carbons too, which surprised me. Worth saving up for as you can switch from bike to bike over time and any scrapes can be polished out. Shame nothing of this durability exists in Ti for old bikes.

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.

Looking at the weld that appears to have somehow shrunk away from what it has been welded to and the bolts that have been drilled out to almost meet the bottom of the threads i would not trust anything about these cranks.

This isnt a case of a few units slipping through QA by spot testing say ten samples out of a batch of 1000. This small batch manufacturing so every item should be getting the full QA treatment and there certainly shoulldnt be poor design/machining errors like seen on those bolts.

I already have a hat to eat so i will say i expect failure to be high in various ways with these cranks. Shame because they look smart.
