    euro bike stuff: crank bros

    just saw this about cranck bros....
    1.the new wheel set looks sorta koolio.
    2. and a shocker, they have licensed the speedball. this might be the start of something good!!!!! .

    not a fan of the pedals but they make some really great stuff.

    If you care to take a peak at the yeti forum. and FYI, there is a new Yeti 575m which is almost a nomad clone ... but they have added the missing brake arch so it might not be such a flexy mess.

    They look tasty and my Shimano's are asking for retirement.

    Thanks for sharing, folks...

    Very nice pic! I guess the deal is, the way the pivots are located, will provide some brake jack and chain growth.....

    headsets

    [QUOTE=demo_slug]just saw this about cranck bros....

    http://www.bikeradar.com/news/articl...hers-kit-12276

    Does anyone understand what they are saying about the Crank Bros headsets? It seems like they are stating that there is no need to press the cups in but I'm not really following them? Anyone get it?

    ok... work with me on this... (and it will easier to explain/understand if you know how the SKF BB's are made)

    The headset is a regular external headset... but there is no cup, at least... not in the way you know. The external surface of the bearing race is actually machined/shaped to be the cup itself.

    Hence the massive weight saving.

    Clear?

    Not DB, but also interesting....

    Thomson expanding their line of components... Well, it's just a seatpost clamp. But I figure they will be the next "to have" item for a blingy ride.

    Elvis, that does make sense, thanks. That's one of those (brilliant) "why didn't I think of that ideas?" So the headset will still have to be 'pressed' in, yeah?

    Yes... There are only two ways to put it there and for it to withstand the forces in that area: Thread it or press it.
