I don't know if it's worth dumping a perfectly functioning '06 crankset for, but it is pretty schweet. Try to find some excuse, or just start filing down your chainrings or something.

It is beautifully-crafted machinery from an aesthetic perspective. Remarkably simple mechanism, too.

i just got 07 chorus and the ultra-torque crank looks awesome, but compared to my old ride with ultegra i don't notice a whole ton of difference.....unless you're wattage reads like mcewen or fast-freddy, then i wouldn't fork out any more cash. BUT, if you can return those cranks and swap-up, then why not?
