    rad, thanks don. also, if you could ask (or maybe you know) if they'll all have the playing card suits like the ones you got did, or if some will be without that.

    I'm pretty sure I saw some in amongst the NAHBS photos that had simple circular cut-outs rather than the card suits.

    Exactly. Longer arms = more torque ; thusly, the splined proprietary chainring system will definitely be able to handle the torque of a 165 crank.

    And I was just using the white cranks as an example of the durability of the system.

    Want to make out?

    ehh, not in the mood.

    so you gotta pull your crank to remove the chainring, right?

    ...aeroplane slowly inserted his crank puller around evanyc's bolt. Slowly aplying torque he loosened the nut holding on to evanyc's bottom bracket, and slid the crankset off the spindle. He loosened the chainring bolts. the chainring fell to the floor. Their eyes met, and they embraced...

    i wonder how that splined system will work and hold up for fixed riding. truvativ had those stylo ss cranks awhile back with the a simlar spline interface between the spider and crank... my friend was running his country road bob fixed with those cranks and the constant forward/back torque riding it fixed kept working the spider/cranks lockring loose.

    does anyone know more about the spline attachment deal on the pauls or white industries?

    You guys have such filthy minds, totally drawn to the innuendo and missing all the technical inaccuracies:

    1. You take off the bottom bracket/crank bolt before using the crank puller.
    2. There are no chainring bolts, it's a splined interface. Kind of similar to the miche cog carrier.

    I'd bet that it works better for the track than the street. The W-I cranks that have received the rave reviews were all on SS bikes, not fixes. I'm guessing it has the same drawbacks as the miche cog carrier.

    true, and i want to ride it like crazy, but i can't afford a spare set of cranks to use for a month. i'd pull my cranks off the beater, but they are JIS.

    you have any idea what the price is gonna be on these? i havent even bothered to ask.
