If someone was looking for a new Cannondale Hollowgram SL crankset where would be the best place to find one? Other than ebay are there bike stores out there that have some laying around for sale? Thanks

just hanging out? not likely. I do, but that's a different deal. The only way to get these is via a Cannondale dealer, or on BB30.com in the spring or this fall.

The problem is you'll have to find a dealer that: one knows you can even order the things; two, what to even order you; and three, willing to order it rather than a Sram crank.

I order some for a guy the other day (a size I didn't have) and had them in 4 days. He called in frenzy and freaking out because his local c'dale dealer "wouldn't" order them for him. So I told him to give me his CC number and I'd have them in a week. He actually thanked me for taking his money :lol:

Hi Starnut:

Are you saying that Cannondale no longer has a shortage of Hollowgram SL cranksets? How about individual components, since I only need the arms 170mm and a lockring.

Thanks,
CHL

where does the Cannondale Hollowgram SL crank place in the SRAM or Shimano lineup?

You got that right...they spin great, easy to install, light. I can't think of anything wrong with them. I purchased mine off ebay (brand new) and run campy record 10 with them. Not one problem.

I want to say new the SISL is $850 w/ crank + BB.

BTW, I bought a used SI crank + BB in great shape for $150. But that was a great deal.

$735 from the crank and $110 for the standard BB.

You can buy the arms alone but they are damn near as much as a crank as dustin pointed out.

I wouldn't say they are readily shipping but you're not having to wait 4-5 months either. couple of weeks I'd guess.

Sram shimano vs SISL. Actually, let's redo that. SISL vs anything else. I went by the fairwheel booth at IB and saw the new clavicula and the mythical thing on the 6 pound bike. The Clavicula is was over hyped, close to the weight of the SISL and and the Mythical thing is supposedly a noodle. SISL > than anything out there. I, personally, have so many sets of them that every bike I have from here on out will have to be BB30 :lol:. Except for my new TT01, I'll just buy a "cheap" SRM for it.

Make sure your bike will take a BB30 crank then call them.

I'm pretty sure they still have them. They were just sitting on a shelf in the office gathering dust.

bon_gabs:

That is the Carbon SI (manufactured by FSA). It is the not the Hollowgram SI or the Hollowgram SL, which are made of Aluminum. The model that you have pictured has been known to delaminate. I believe it's at the pedal insert but I could be wrong. It could be at the spindle insertion point. Supposedly, Cannondale did not have any problems with the three piece Carbon SI crankset.

You're better off buying a SRAM offering. We haven't seen any failures yet and you can find them reasonably priced from your retailer or on Ebay as well.
Expect to pay a premium for the Hollowgram SL or Hollowgram SI, especially in size 170mm.

Bearings are the same for SRAM, FSA, Cannondale, Enduro, etc. All use a 6806 size cartridge bearing.

I see that you have the FSA Gossamer BB30 crankset. Please check with Cannondale. FSA has recalled certain Gossamer BB30 cranksets that were installed as OEM equipment.

I'd swear I asked this once before but can't find the answer (my Search-Fu is weak today!)

- I have a 2006 Synapse Carbon 2 bike which came with the Carbon SI (OEM by FSA) crankset. Does anyone know whether this frame will accept the current 2010 Hollowgram SISL crankset? Thanks.
