This link was forwarded to me off-list: http://www.bikespecialties.com/BSwebSite/Parts.html

I emailed, asking for more information, and I'm hope the author won't mind me posting parts of the reply. The shop (in Torono, Ontario) sounds like a place we'd all like to visit.

The 'Q' factor sounds much too low, but I'm sure it's still relatively low when compared to most modern triple cranks - at least I hope it is!
