    This is all I've seen so far. I like them and the price is decent. The only thing that stands between me and a set is money...

    that's some good sh*t right there. I bought a set of vintage road cranks like these for a friends re-build conversion, but being able to get them new, in 144bcd, and stronger is a sweet deal

    These look good, but I'd like to read a review before I grab em.

    Agreed. Hopefully they're as good as they look!

    Sweet (looks just like my vintage crank scraped from the boneyard).

    If I get them, will I see a $160 improvement in performance?

    I've had one on order via Soma for about a month now - last I heard they were getting them in stock in a couple of weeks (this was a little over a couple of weeks ago) They aren't in stock at IRD's webstore either. Hopefully soon! Has anyone actually gotten their hands on a pair? All the places that said they'd be getting them, only a handful actually have them listed, and none seem to have them in stock.

    If you're in the Bay Area, they have these in stock at San Francisco Cyclery for $160, I think. I was there this weekend and got to check them out in person. They look really, really good. I wish I could try em out.

    i would spend the money on some vintage campy ones rather than repros. you could get old dura ace thats about the same. idk i like to have stuff thats actually old not reproduced but thats me im a little ocd.

    Campagnolo and Shimano abandoned that design years ago.

    I never really understood the obsession with old stuff folks on this scene (and ultimately the manufacturers) have. But, there are a lot of things that I don't understand. To each his own.

    They appear to be a really nice replica.

    Meh, at least they look nice. There's a ton of basic cranks out there with inexplicably high price tags; at least this one offers something on the aesthetic end to justify the expense.

    I have a set on the VO Polyvalant I am building. I cant give a ride report b/c I am still waiting for a part to finish the build. (bar-end shifter for SA 5-speed) They look great and the fit and finish is very good, as soon as the shifter comes in (I've been waiting 3 months@#$%) I will post a ride review. Hope this helps!!
