Strength:

Strong yet light. Smooth shifting. Great black finish.

Weakness:

None.

Picked one up from Amazon for a whole $145, 175mm length. The compact gearing is great, the finish is superb, and it includes a great BB. Very impressive!

I like the looks of this crankset over Shimano's "space-ship" models - it goes very well with vintage steel rides as well as modern carbon wonders. Plus, installation is ultra simple. I also like the fact that it's all-alloy rather than a carbon-alloy blend - seems much more efficient and solid.

Give it a try, you'll love it!

Strength:

Cost
Appearance- the black finish looks great
Stiffer than anything out there
Lighter than the current Ultegra

Weakness:

I haven't found any yet

Absolutely wonderful crankset. Put this on to replace an older Ultegra crank and BB that was worn completely out. Being a 240lbs rider that climbs like a billy goat, I always believed that I was flexing the frame, well not with these. They are rediculusly stiff, quiet, and shifting performance is so much better than anything I have ridden lately.
