    Strengths:    Strong, Light, good-looking, Italian, Silver.

    Weaknesses:    Graphics wear off

    Bottom Line:   
    I've had this crank on my bike since 2000, when I had it installed at the LBS. Sixteen years later, I've never had the b.b. serviced, but it spins just as nice as the day I got it (I don't ride in the rain if I can help it). My bike is a 1989, so this 53-39 crank looks just right. Comparing the weights with the newer stuff, there is no reason for me to ever upgrade. This year, I am running Stronglight 5053 rings on it. This crank is a champ.

    Strengths:    veloce Crankset. and shifting.

    Weaknesses:    the logo is designed to peel off the Crankset. I prefer anodized logo.

    Bottom Line:   
    Chris at Summit, gave me a pro-rated trade in price on my 105 groupo.
    I got everything including wheelsets for 850 including labor.
    The new 2007 style Crankset rocks. It has a hollow bottom bracket that is part of the crankset, with enterlocking splines. This is the best part of the groupo. very stiff, and spins like perpetual motion. shifing is very short crisp. best ever. braking I upgraded to record.

    Strengths:    Nice and stiff

    Weaknesses:    The Campag logo wears off quickly

    Bottom Line:   
    These cranks make for a nice smooth ride. They feel stiff when standing to climb (I'm over 200 lbs and have felt some flex with other cranks). The 39-53 teeth provide a nice range of ratios.

    I'm not sure what the price is like - they came with my bike.

    After a few hundred miles the logo has started to wear off, but to be fair I had my MTB pedals and shoes on them for a while and it is possible that the bulky shoe might have rubbed against the crank and contributed to this somewhat....

    Strengths:    Price

    Weaknesses:    Mine didn't hold up too well.

    Bottom Line:   
    My right crank bent after a year. I only weight 140 lbs. My Torelli has Italian threaded BB, which came loose a couple of times. I'm not sure if this could contribute to the crank bending. When I pedal hard in the big ring I could see it move a full 3/4 cm outward when I pushed down with the right foot. I changed to an Ultegra crank and now I can't see any side-to-side movement.

    Strengths:    Weight, quality and Price

    Weaknesses:    the 2000 Veloce crank set (including rings) are not as nice looking at my 1997 Veloce crank set. There is less shine and the new veloce ring just have a cheap Shimano RSX look to them.

    Bottom Line:   
    Still one of the best buys in cycling. The older Veloce just had a classier look than the newer version. The chain rings look much cheaper than previous years.
