Review: 1 Year on Cane Creek's Ultra-Light Titanium eeWings Crankset
@ReformedRoadie: I think ISIS is still a standard on some gearboxes, e-bike motors and unicycles. Not sure if it is all the same standard. But I suppose it should be considering they must call it a standard for a reason.

Review: 1 Year on Cane Creek's Ultra-Light Titanium eeWings Crankset
@Lokirides: Thanks for your response. I don't know, I don't think one foot pushes the other up even though I'm on platforms. Just like walking, it isn't just the leading foot pushing the trailing foot off the ground. I lift the trailing foot myself. I may not add power through 360 degrees but I can stomp down pretty hard so that may be well over 90deg. And possibly a bit for the forwards and rearwards bits. With two feet, that still makes it close to the 360deg. But yeah as you mention for marathon racers and people doing really long rides, it may be a place to cut some rotating mass. Just wondering as the motion of the small cranks look relatively slow compared to that of the faster spinning wheel, if you are actually pedaling and not coasting/pumping that is. Two years ago I upgraded from 2004 Shimano LX cranks (octalink bb) to Truvativ Ruktion (with Howitzer bb). I think the Shimano cranks were lighter but I am not really feeling anything. Next time I swap cranks again, I'll try to be a bit more mindful to see whether I notice any difference. Cheers!

@Lokirides: On the upstroke, isn't there another part going down balancing it all out?

I heard the new pre-production XTR cranks had some issues. Maybe you can get some of these first so that they fail and you can buy the CC cranks.

Just curious. Does saving weight on cranks matter much? People like to have the center of mass near the bb and it isn't like the cranks are rotating that fast when riding nor are they particularly big. Nothing against these cranks in particular, just curious whether saving weight on cranks matters that much anyway.

Depending on where you're coming from, you may like the looks of them or not. I like tubular BMX cranks like Profile makes them. This is right up there.

Seems like PB noticed your comment, fixed it, people watched and went on to downvote you. How is that for a thank you ;)?

Spotted: Prototype ‘Project Black’ 27.5/29 Specialized DH Bike - Crankworx Rotorua 2019
@alexhyland: Yeah, I thought that was the Black 3.0, wasn't it? Yeah I think if you want to make it hard for people to figure out what the bike looks like in the pits, paint everything (bike, workstand, pits even) Black 3.0. Stupid thing is, if you drop a tool or bike part, you just can't see it. Same with lining up bike parts etc. Must get annoying at some point.
