Was there anything else different about these other than the non-fluted arms? I mean, was there anything about them that addressed the cracking problem? Personally, I never had a Campy crank crack, but DO NOT want to open that can of worms again. Thanks for your input! Jim Cole Memphis, TN -------------------------------------------------------------------- Jim- I have a feeling someone has already mentioned it, but you are correct, these non-milled later cranks are different AND stronger than the older style. They have extra beefed up casting in the spider/cranks arm area that is always prone to cracking. I have had these later non-milled cranks on three different bikes, but only one of them have I put 10,000 miles (10+years) on. They are mighty dirty, but have no spider cracks what-so-ever. cheers- Dave Anderson Cut Bank MT
