    Seems to be a decent deal on cranks?

    Curious what you guys think. Seller has great ratings, but the price seems a bit lower (free ship too) than the other listings.

    Wow.

    His feedback score tells me he's legit. I'd pull the trigger (if I didn't already own a pair).

    And even if falls through for some reason, eBay's response team will spoon feed his soul to you. You'll get your money back.

    I purchased the cranks as I'm collecting parts for the spring and this seems like a good deal as a used pair recently sold on this forum for $210. I'm thinking it'll workout - ill post pics of the cranks when I get them.

    Let me know if you need a chainring to go with those cranks. I have an extra 51t ring that's doing me no good lying idle in my parts bin.

    I also bought a set a few days ago. Can post what I get when it arrives in the next day or two.

    All signs point to legit. Seems like they must have stumbled onto a stash of NOS cranks. Unboxing porn:




    Also, Velomine has the best deal I found on the 7710 BB. All together, BB and crankset cost me about $275 shipped.

    Thanks for the tip about Velomine. Reasonable international shipping costs too which is usually not the case to Australia!

    Their wheels are really inexpensive, too. The price-sensitive fixy crowd shops there because the prices are so good.

    Thanks for the tip carleton. Usually don't even bother looking at wheels from the States as shipping is exhorbitant. Even their wheel freight costs are very reasonable!
