It's nice to leave this thread for a month or two and then pop back and see what's are the latest additions - for me I get obsessed about a set of cranks, buy them, stare at them for a month or so and decide I can't use them 'cos they look too nice and move them on :oops:

I know that's not really the right way but it keeps me happy, and it's only cranks that I do that with, honest...

I do that sometimes also.
I bought this Kooka crank about 6 months back, with the intention of putting it on my Klein because the colors were similar but changed my mind.

Those WRA's are nice, very similar to Roox Spinning Max's from about 10 years ago.

Yeah, very similar indeed... but somehow these look a little cleaner IMO... :wink:

460g as you see them, so don't know how that compares to RooX's?

These are from former cannondale employee.
Complete NOS set with bb cups, bearings, bolts, washers, two axle lengths and 2 different granny rings. He kept it in the shelf for many years
I thought i was gonna put them on my city bike.
When they came in, it became clear i could never molest them.
They travelled long way, changed shelf and there they are... :)
