So is there any difference in the Truvativ and Sram versions of the Omnium? I know Sram is the mother company of Truvativ.
But I have heard some people had complained about the connection between the axle and right crank that is permanent on some of the other GXP style track cranksets that Sram has made, and I want to make sure that that is not the case with the Sram branded Omnium.
Otherwise, what would be the reason for the price difference between the Sram and Truvativ other than possibly quality control and tolerancing.
I don't believe they are difference at all, as SRAM and Truvativ are essentially the same company (in that Truvativ is part of SRAM). I assume it is just misrepresentation by a website. My Omniums are "made" by Truvativ, but also say SRAM on them.
Road [racing] is one of the only sports where adult men can compete in a non-scholastic setting, so inevitably 8/10 racers are fiercely-competitive nobodies. It's fun as hell, but it's also the foremost refuge of defeated and aging jocks, turned middle-management types.
I just bought them on Monday and they shipped them out yesterday. I live in Hawaii so hopefully they come in the next few working days. Only problem is that I am still waiting on my frame so these will just collect dust until then :-/
