Just got my Cooks off of my old cannondale and given them a bit of a clean up so thought I'd share them on here, think I've had em about 13 years now lol I think the F's were always a bit of an underdog compared to the E cranks but I love mine.

Finally got round to getting a black set of rings and gold bolts, here's how they're looking now.

Very nice! F`s are my favourite and probably the only usable (strongest) ones thanks to forging.

I actually think they are nicer, I was just discussing with a mate earlier today that I don't like the narrower armed Cooks.

Yeah I think I prefer em to the thinner cranks and I've had them for about 10-13 years from new and have been faultless. They're going to be having a full set of black chain rings and gold chainring bolts when I can afford them

Lol I don't like mine looking thrashed, I'm always trying to avoid my heels rbbing on them but they still get used a lot. Just got my set of black chainrings I wanted and some gold bits.

awesome cranks...the 'E' ones looked anorexic...(like very early middleburn ones...look like they would go 'ping' and shatter into smittereens!) proper good colour combo too.
