Cool cranks, how long did they take to machine and are you going to use them?

I used them for a bit they were okay , until one of those untimed dis- mounts we do occasionally , and the Lh one bent , just a little bit , but enough , I've re-designed them , and will one day re make them

Maybe

Mike

Grear stuff! Love Machine Tech. Can remember around 94 a local dealer sold front hubs for 25 euro (some overstock from Koga Miyata...) Cycled 15 Km to get one. Those were the days

It would seem that the rear had problems. I dont know if this is the first gen Power claw and not the later Silent. MTBR reviews are here:

Also found some more pics from another MTBR thread. The first pic is a very interesting hybrid model of the Zeroflex. Instead of the normal hole it has the sculpted cut of the second generation V brakes.



This is their second generation of cantilevers. They began advertising them around 95-96 so just when V Brakes killed all the cantilevers. Because of this, not a lot of them got sold. Very rare. very beautiful.
