Strengths:    light, stiff, lotsa looks, fast!, did i say light?

Weaknesses:    scratch alot, good luck if you can find them, expensive

Bottom Line:   
These are on my Litespeed Ghisalo putting it just at 14lbs bare. Got the compacts. Rode 1800 miles from Canada to Mex Sept.06 with them. Never a problem.
I'm 170lbs. Never had a problem other than the crank bolts backing out...probably my fault for not checking them regularly.

Strengths:    Light and sexy

Weaknesses:    They failed at 4500 miles

Bottom Line:   
I bought the crankset when I was building my Cyfac. They are light and sexy. I have only put 4500 mile on these. 3 of the 5 eyelets that the chain ring bolts attach the chain ring to the crank arm are badly cracked. One near blown out. I will not buy Time cranks any time soon.

I am not a powerful rider. I weigh in at 145 lbs and have quads like a grade school girl. So it must have been a bad design or poor manufacturing by StrongLight (co who manufactures).
