Strengths:    Low weight; low Q-factor

Bottom Line:   
I changed my old crankset to buy new 175mm cranks: after few rides testing it, I'm totally satisfied by this product. Low Q-Factor, light, cheap: what else?

Strengths:    Very stiff, lighter than the old system, and spins nicely at speed.

Weaknesses:    Higher-end versions are expensive, just like all other Campagnolo cranks. Required purchase of driver extension to install, but can't complain much.

Bottom Line:   
I switched out a 2003 alu Record square-taper BB/crankset for a 2008 closeout Centaur UT, on a Cyfac Nerv Carbon.

First impression is wow, this thing is really really stiff and feels nicer than the old alu square-taper. The difference was such that my 2003 carbon-soled Pearl Izumi shoes felt like flip-flops!

Installation was fairly straightforward. So far it has been problem-free.

Strengths:    Exceptionally light.

Much cheaper than the higher end campy carbon stuff if that's your thing.
Solid feeling.

Great chainrings-they wear well, and shift flawlessly

No creaks, loosening arms etc.

Weaknesses:    Bearings are very poorly sealed-wet or muddy riding will result in bearing failures in short order. My bearings siezed despite being greased twice during the year.

Replacemen bearings are difficult to find inexpensively-they are 6805 bearings, only they are 1mm thinner than standard. Be careful when buying replacements-standard, commonly available 6805 bearings will not work

Twice the cost of the alloy version, which IMO looks much nicer

Bottom Line:   
I ordered the alloy compact version of this crank from PBK, and they sent me the carbon CT version by accident. I decided to keep it-even though I find it unattractive. I installed it on my main road bike, which also happens to be my cyclocross bike. I put a season of mostly dry road riding/racing on it, plus a few trail rides and several CX races in the fall.

Strengths:    Lightweight. Can feel power transfer. Looks good while not being too blingy. Ultratorque bottom bracket is awesome! Compact 50-34 rings!

Weaknesses:    None yet.

Bottom Line:   
First modern crankset with the outboard bearings and Campy Ultratorque hollow bottom bracket. Love the feeling of direct translation of energy to the cranks with these cranks. The fact that they are so light with their carbon construction makes them even more appealing. I also prefer the appearance of the carbon on the Centaurs over the Chorus and even Record cranks. Less like a marbled kitchen countertop.
