    They should print up some 14t and 15t units for the 500 (Euro's) Berner cage crowd.

    No mention of how many watts it's saving, what a poor marketing.

    MarkC said it with sarcasm, but in fact they're losing the oversize pulleys advantage. I'm serious, yes there is one, as small as it is, it was probably the difference between yesterday 1st and 2nd place in Paris-Nice prologue.

    No sweat... I'm gonna use my Perfomance membership, then wait for a 20% off coupon/promotion and it'll cost as much as a Campy Record crank - sweet!

    Aftermarket pulleys.
    "solution in search of a problem" comes to mind.
