I hope so. There isn't any information on the distributors site. I'll keep checking it and if I hear I'll post.

I can use this but I have been the beneficiary of some of the goodies from krusty's tickle trunk already so I will let someone else snag it....the levers are great by the way, thanks Graham!

the prize was listed as the "module" which would have come with bb30 and the s-works crank, but what came was the standard team frameset

Aw. That crank is awesome. It's a basically a BB30 campy ultratorque system.

lighter, stronger, stiffer

i wouldn't say "so good" as in it's a vast improvement, but it's an improvement that is out there for those so inclined to take advantage of it, even if it is minor

Less Q-factor - or rather, a return to the old Q-factor.

I'm doing the Velodrome on October 24th if anyone wants to join me.

Edit: 3 spots left for Track 1 according to their site

Track 1. Track 2 is on Tuesdays or something. But I haven't done Track 1, so me and a friend are doing that.

Check that out, someone posted it on the tofixd boards. Any of you guys know his name? I recognize him from when I used to work for George at Parts Unknown. He would come around sometimes looking for random things, I've even noticed him eye balling my bike when it was locked up, out front of a Tim Hortons.
