The shifting seems perfectly fine with Di2 BTW. (Admittedly I am comparing it to a nearly worn out Ultegra crankset).

I thought about the WI VBC cranks...but $400USD for alloy sq taper cranks is really hard to swallow.

Glad they shift great with Di2, doing my own 46/30 build in May....AAMOF I think I might have randomly ended up buying your IRD Defiant cranks LOL. Least I thought I read somewhere you were EBaying them right around the time I won an auction for em. Small world?

Both the Sugino and the WI VBCs are really expensive. I get that both are relatively small companies...but jeebus.

I wish the PraxisWorks M30 cranks were available in 46/30.
