Yeah I've always loved the way yours looked, what kind of paint did you use?

Why are sugino cranks better than others?

What makes these cranks a lot more money than most cranks?

Is it weight? Durability?

Is there a hierarchy list for cranks?

Thanks! I believe it was black krylon semi-gloss. I took the spacers off, and put a small roll of newspaper inside of the stack, so that i wouldn't be painting the inside circumference of the spacers, and then put 2 quick coats on, outside on the sidewalk. Being somewhat impatient, it was during a windy late afternoon, rather than a calmer mid-day moment, which could have made it slightly more consistent, in terms of finish.

haha, when describing how to paint little round spacers becomes a complex job and they need directions!

No info on the Giant site, I'm going to the shop today, I'll get the exact product model. The LBS just got them in, I'm the first to try so its a relatively new product.

Yep, the KHS FLite100 is the same frame (or super, super similar) as the Kilo TT, so they are definitely welcome here. Nice bike! Just gotta lose the Velocity stickers

yeah with those $5 you don't spend on spacers and buy that $4 can of paint . . .that whole dollar you saved will buy you some sweet bling for your ride!

You know this machine we keep discussing, get on it and ride to a shop and ask. Of course this requires leaving your computer but I trust you can handle it. Not everything needs to be bought online especially something as small as a spacer.

Yup with a crackberry while I ride and your mom is on the handlebars . . . I'm taking her out for a cheeseburger so don't wait up for her either.
