    These are pretty well worn as you can tell, it is hard to make out the graphics so I did a quick outline of the lettering. I was told they were hieroglyphic style, maybe prototype. These cranks are 181mm by the way. The top pics you can make out the "OOK BR, the

    Has anyone ever seen a spider to fit the E2 series in 130BCD?

    The cranks a slimmer than the F-Type, but use a similar spider.

    Thanks. Taken with a Nikon D40 using a 50mm Nikkor lens and processed with my secret sauce.

    That's a mixture of Sedona red and Flagstaff tan.

    Matrix is a Trek brand. I guess Cook was supplying high end Treks.. so was Bullseye at some point.

    Anybody know how tough the F-Type was? It was my understanding that as Cook Brothers aged, their processes and strength of product improved.

    I've got a set of old F-Types on my wife's bike, she's not much of a masher nor is she doing lots of drops so they are just about perfect for her situation.

    I'm thinking of swapping them onto a more modern full suspension for her and utilizing a Wolftooth 5-bolt 94BCD narrow wide chainring. The chainring and a new BB might cost me $80, but that's still half the price of a Raceface Aeffect Cinch.

    Anyone have any luck removing the spider on a F crank? Is there a Park tool that will do the trick?

    Sorry, only just seen this.
    I blasted the logos on using stencils, it took around two hours and I said I'd never do these ones again!

    The F type was forged so should be stronger.
    A park pin spanner will fit, but if the lock ring is tight you will struggle I think. I don't know of any other tool that fits.
    If you measure the distance between pins I will find out if the Hope spider lock ring tool fits.
