Group--- I have a PMP NOS crankset that I keep in my "wierd stuff" case--- I have seen the sales literature for this product, which explains in explicit engineering type detail all of the advantages of the product. Only problem is, if you have any sense of engineering, or much of anything else, for that matter, the hype is absolutely bulls***---- very comical, indeed! I think they were going on the assumption that, if you put it in front of the public, it will sell.... Cheers- Nelson Miller--- Seattle

The cranks sound like PMPs. They are very odd, and I have no idea what the thinking is behind them. If the pedal axle is 170mm from the BB axle, the leverage is what it is, no matter how indirect the path of the arm. Can anyone explain these cranks for the list?
