they're used, missing dustcaps (not a big deal), &, most importantly, there's FIVE DAYS LEFT on the auction. wake me up when it's down to 5 minutes.

I've gotten Record square taper road cranks NIB for $100 a couple of times on eBay. 53-39 rings.

Nowadays, you see "TRACK!!!!" "PERFECT FOR FIXIE!!!!!!" on everything and moronic newbies bidding the stuff up to the stratosphere.

Waiting on a Record bottom bracket I got for $68 the other day.

Watch out on those fluted cranks. They had a tendency to fail in a most unpleasant way. (hopefully the pictured model isn't the one I'm thinking of)

Brand new these are $340 from World Class Cycles, so I wouldn't give more than half that much for used ones that are missing parts. Like Scrod said, the older classic Pista cranks are a lot cooler. IMO the modern ones are kinda goofy looking.

Those were the early and mid-70's fluted road cranks. I don't remember any problems with the pista cranksets.

I wouldn't get excited about the current $120 bid. And I'm willing to bet that when riding, you can't tell them from my $50 EighthInch crankset.

Maybe you can't, but a true tifoso would immediately know the difference.

In this case, looks to me like someone's after a shiny crankset with a Campy logo, regardless of actual performance. Nothing wrong with that, just not my thing.

I call Campagnolo the "Mercedes of bike parts". I'm not sure if I heard it somewhere before, but it fits. My GF is all about campy. She's not a brand freak about anything else (including non-bike stuff).

I say, if it makes you like your bike more, or if it makes you feel faster, then I'm all for you having it. If you are buying it to impress others, then don't bother because your job will never be done as you will *always* have to do more to impress others. This is why you see $3,000+ Mavic IOs on street fixies.

I have Chorus 10 on my road bike and I'd trade it for Ultegra or DA 10 in a heartbeat. But, I'm a Shimano fan like that.

This isn't going to make the Campy guys happy.

You must be a lot fatter than me. For riding around on the street, they're plenty stiff. I've had Campy on my road bikes, and I've had Shimano too. Never noticed any measurable difference. Not quite the same story with my mountain bikes or BMX race bikes. On them, I can feel the stiffer cranksets.

And why would that concern me? Everyone's entitled to their opinion.

Yes. In the past, I've gotten a couple of new ones for $100 each. I threw out a lowball offer the other day, and got it. Sometimes you get lucky.

If you don't ~have~ to have campy, there are other retro/fluted pista cranksets out there, for much cheaper. I just won these: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...=STRK:MEWNX:IT
for $79.
I also scored a campy clone sugino mighty pista crankset for $20, though I will need to find a left crankarm for it.
