    Anyone remember the wavy Roox cranks?

    They were not straight crank arms but cncd wavy type with oval machined holes, anyone remember these?? These were the coolest cranks that has ever been built.

    Show pics.

    I don't know about that. My vote for coolest would go to Caramba Doublebarrels, Boone Twists, Morati, or Sweet Wings.

    I remeber the double barrels too, once upon a time like 15 years ago I had the german "bike" magazine yearly catalog with all the goodies in it. Those were the days.

    I did a google search on the roox cranks came up with zilch. Strange. I even had the Roox catalog when they were available.

    My vote for coolest crankarms goes to Sweet Wings.

    My vote for most superfluous crankarms goes to Onza's cast titanium money-toilets.

    Did those ever make it to market? Other than the magazine article I don't think I've ever seen any.

    I don't think they did. I saw pictures of revised prototypes--ribs to increase spider stiffness, different lightening holes--but that's as far as it went. They were projected to cost about $600. Outrageous.
