Yes I think it is sweet too, but am I alone in being bothered that the rings aren't bolted to the arm in the symmetric orientation? There are 5 ways to bolt the rings to the arm, only one of which has the three bolt pattern symmetric about the arm.

I've also noticed three different BSA cranksets on ebay lately, none of which were bolted together "right" by this standard. There are the three arms that spell out "BSA", and two plain arms. Shouldn't the two plain arms be the ones adjacent the crank, with the B-S-A symmetric about the crank?

Yes I know how picky I'm being. If you think this predilection of mine is due to an overly-strict potty training or some such, feel free to... keep it to yourself! ;)
