    I've only followed this project occasionally. Do these cranks offer anything unique or are they just an alternative? I'd love to see some more low Q factor MTB cranks.

    It may be the crummy picture... both cranks shown are 175mm.

    There are several design features that are unique that add both to the stiffness of the crank and allow us to make it very light. I can discuss this more once we receive the patents. The cranks easily passes the EN testing standards, which may allow us to lighten it even more.

    Getting a low Q MTB crank is one of my priorities with the design as well. It will probably come in 2x and 1x configurations by the end of the year.

    Well, I consider 180 to be short, even for my road bike.

    That's OK, we can machine them to any length you need. Just let me know how long you want them and we'll put you in the queue.

    So which thread did you find that pic in? You could have linked it rather than re-attached it.
