a couple good points: they mustve been the stiffest things out there, felt like you were standing on giant steel i-beams; and they looked pretty cool, too.

Chronos. I really like the Quad myself. Other than the obscure bcd it is a really good looking crankset.

The Chronos on the other hand... :roll:

I picked up 2 of them on ebay- mine were used- the 1st one I got for a little over $400 (shipped). The crankset had quite a few scuffs, but it's functionally perfect and the bb was in really good shape. The last one I paid closer to $470, but the crankset is/was immaculate, but the BB is not as in good shape (both bb's were ceramic). There was one in between I picked up, but I had the buyer take it back because it had some serious gouges and in one spot the carbon was seriously damaged. I don't know what the guy was thinking, you couldn't see it in the pictures, but he took it back (even though the auction said no returns- it was mis-represented).

Anyone know if the Vuma Quad and/or the Chrono Quad work with Di2?
