I now have a bike with BTCs and thinking about gettings some of the above cranks (or is it just the bolts you switch?). I have never had any experience with them and don't know what's out there. Just curious if they are prone to loosening etc... They sound great if they can save me from having to pack a crank arm extractor and socket without any compromise. Any advice would be appreciated.

They are self extracting crank arm bolts. No, they shouldn't come loose. At least Campy's self extracting bolts had collars which were reverse threaded but only threaded onto Campy cranks.

I have a Sugino crank and the only bolts I have been able to find are oversized for ISIS or Octalink. Sandsmachine indicates Sugino used to make them. Anyone aware of a self extracting bolt that will work on a Sugino crank? If not, looks like I might have to go w/ an LX etc...
