    Do the LA Gear cranks come with a Biopace option? 29er bikes have larger dead spots in their pedal strokes...sure would help some.

    any chance of getting it in a 3,4,5t version? if bottom bracket makers don't make something to accomodate that configuration, they are seriously behind the ball and missing out on unlimited sales to an obviously significant portion of the biking population. i've done calculamations n sh!t, so i know dis stuff fer real.

    I heard from a reliable source, that will be an online store, only accessible from a code within your crank set box, that has exclusive items for the purchaser of these fine crank sets.

    My source tells me to look for acid washed jeans, limited edition "29er" swatch watches, and L.A. Gear exclusive Vuarnet sunglasses, all within this members only (pun intended) store.
    I need a cool saying to put here.

    we should immediately establish a new standard dictated entirely from MTBR to tell the industry that we need special parts for 29ers, it will have a 6 arm 78mm bolt pattern for the proper ring sizes. Davidcopperfield can campaign the manufacturers to make it and we can have a poll to determine the proper tooth counts. And when it comes out, Mikesee can buy every single one to be the BIG man in charge, and then ernesto can make innuendos all day long about female body parts, neon pink cables and teflon coating on the new special 29er chainrings.

    and then mikesee can be banned for advertising that he has them, so that noone can access them.

    I've been testing a prototype for a month now, and we have discovered it is NOT 29er compatible. Please move this post to another board.

    What will the Q factor on these cranks be? Can I offset them 45mm to the non-drive side to accomodate how I like to "wear" myself within my chamois?

    Also, will they come in Kross Kolours and have threading opposite of standard?
