Hi all,

I know this may be a long shot, but I am restoring my Colnago Carbonissimo and would love to get a Colnago carbon crankset for it...

175 arms would be the best, but 172.5 will work.

PM me here or send me an email to: Local399@aol.com

Thank you,

Steve

Steve,
You may already know about their history, but do a search first.
There are threads here and elsewhere about them exploding due to a poor design.
I had a set with stress cracks near both pedal inserts.

I didnt have a clue...

Thanks, I think I'll stick with plan A (FSA Carbon crankset) at least they have worked out the bugs...

They may have had success with the second generation, but I don't have any info.
I tried to warranty mine through Veltec and they offered me a new Record crank at cost. Boo.
Anyways, Your Plan A is probably the safe way to go.
The Nag cranks sure were pretty, though.

Yes, very pretty and would look great on my all nude carbon Carbonissimo...

But, as my late father said: Form follows function (he was an architect).
