    New Cranks for BB30

    Anybody seen any? I've seen pics of the FSA kforce light and afterburner (I think) that will be made for bb30. I thought I heard something about a truvativ bb30 crank from Sea Otter, but now I can't find the source. Anybody? Pics are appreciated.

    the fsa cranks are here, scroll down to FSA.

    I dont think they are available yet but the BB30 standard is clearly gaining momentum. Read about it here.

    Thanks Dan. They say in that article the BB30 cranks have a narrower stance and I can see why they would.
    However, my Cannondale SL cranks have the widest stance of any cranks I've ever had. Now that I have them, I love the fact they are wide. I have better control and more power because of it. And they are noticable stiffer and lighter than XTR.

    Cycling News did an awesome review of BB30 and all the manufacturers. Even Kona has a BB30 bike now!

    No problem... it is a good review and I for one am pretty happy to see BB30 gaining ground.

    all of the bb30's in that article are very close to the shell...the one on the rize I demo'd was spaced out quite a bit for stay clearance. Still noticeably narrow for me, particularly with the candy pedals (i'm used to flats), and to be honest I like a wider q-factor. I don't touch the inner 1/2 in of my wellgo flats as it is. And I have a very narrow waist. Maybe I'm weird.


    up close and personal!

    Man, you're the BEST! Congratulations! I've been around here for a while and didn't realize you were a graphic designer for Cannondale! I've been searching for ages the Prophet guy to make a sticker to glue it on my 2006 Prophet 4000, which is a shame it didn't come with the Prophet guy anymore. Luckly I've got the original Prophet logo over it, since I thought the new one is too high-tech and didn't match the bike style. Anyway, may I use the Prophet guy image on your site to make a sticker for my bike? I'll need to tranfer it to CorelDraw and make a vector image, but may I use it? Oh, and the eagle too? For a couple stickers, and maybe a couple caps and a couple T's?
