This seems a stonking price for a carbon crankset.

Apparently similar or identical to Campagnolo Record from a couple of years ago, it is about the same price as you'd pay for a Tiagra or 105 crankset but a bit lighter if weight is important to you (<700g vs ~800-900g) and has The Carbons which as we all know is vitally important when stopped for a coffee.

Current Record crankset is about £300 street price for reference.

10sp and 39/53 only might be a deal-breaker for some but at least there are various crank lengths available. You will of course need a Campy/Fulcrum BB.

My FSA set is ugly but that alone doesn't really warrant replacement, but I'm sure tempted to get this for when I might want to change it.

Being a bike deal on HUKD I might as well include the following:

1) Yes, you could buy a whole bike for that from Tesco/Argos/Sports Direct
2) Yes, you could probably buy a car for that if you tried hard enough
3) Yes, everyone agrees with you that middle-aged men in lycra look ridiculous
4) Yes, it's an outrage that a human on a bicycle held you up for 15 seconds on the way to work this morning

Glad we got all that out of the way first

Seems to be. Apparently this can convert a 10sp to 11sp though.

Heat for the price and preemptive comments
Could buy a house and 2 horses for that.
Haha like the coffee remark. So presumably I won't actually notice any performance difference with this on other than nice thoughts?

Think will wait till 12 speed comes along has to be better.
