Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Needs a rotor+ crankset to go with the qrings. Then it'd be perfect.

I have no experience with qrings so I won't judge them, I'd actually like to try them one day.

Without qrings, I'd say a rotor+ crankset with praxis rings - that would also be sexy.

And some spider rings, I can dig that.

It's weird for me to see cannondale cranks a on a non cannondale bike, but they're a fantastic crankset. I only have the Si with the spider rings, slightly heavier but they spin like butter (if butter were to spin).

Easiest way to describe them is they're biopace on steroids. I love especially the amount of chainringbolt drillings they've incorporated, weight savings & near unlimited positioning to match a rider's pedal stroke preference. Still mostly a love-hate relationship with cyclists as with the latter though.

Agreed, I was initially skeptical over how in-house equipment would be better than 3rd party thanks to brands such as bontranger and avenir being synonymous with OEM no-frillsness.
Best BB30 crank out there IMO. For once, I am actually taking advantage of my BB30 now.

I have far less experience than you, but compared to the fsa stuff I've used, even the dura ace crankset on the fuji...I find the cannondale set to be better. Definitely excellent quality.
