I just "uneathed" a couple of Lotus bike from our shop dungeon, seeing as the Deore crank sets on them were a recent topic. One was a double and the other a triple. The triple was a mess, as were both bikes. The DD pedals seem seized and the crank bolts in the self-extractors were bending the allen keys. I'll see if the Kroil did any good over night.

But why I REALLY made this submission was the fact that I'm looking for a left mate to the crankset for my '53? Dawes, which I broke while test-riding it prior to purchase some 20 or so years ago. It seems like it fits the Allez description Steven was talking about. The bike did have Allez pedals.

I've posted some pics of both the above mentioned cranksets at http://client.webshots.com/album/280852861BhELaw
