Craig over at eecycle works was one half of the duo that put out Sweet Parts back in the 90’s.  Their Sweetwings cranksets set a pretty high bar, and from what I have seen thus far, the eecrank will raise that bar even higher.

More images, plus a shot of the eebrake on the other side.

There were two sets of the cranks on the show floor. Calfee and Fairwheel were lucky enough to have them mounted up proper.  Both sets were running Praxis Works chainrings.  I was told by both the Calfee rep, as well as the Fairwheel guys that these were the final version.  Lets hope they ship soon.

While not exactly new, the eebrake is always a pretty thing to look at.  The things are sub 100g per wheel!  This set was hold up on a custom Callfee.  Want a set of your own?  Be willing to part with $589, and that does not include pads.

  1. With the hollow opening on only one end, won’t they get filled with mud and whatnot, and have no way to push it out, negating the light weight?

  2. Carbon version of Caramba cranks? Well, that’s only the case if you’re blind. First, the EE cranks are not CF. Uhm, they’re aluminum. Second, EE cranks aren’t offset like Caramba cranks. Third the EE cranks have three holes drilled along their length, not the two that the Carambas had. You are right, however, in so far as both cranks spin on an axle supported by two bearings.

  3. Way to sound like total jerk Robin.

    The construction is basically the same as the Caramba cranks of yesteryear, offset or not. More accurately these are made exactly like the Rotor 3D cranks. Only the Rotors’ are drilled from both ends of the crank.

  4. I’m not going to say you’re wrong, but I can’t find any reference older than ’09. The Rotors were in use at the TDF in ’08, which means they were testing prototypes up to a year before.

  5. Via the Internet Wayback Machine, EE Cycle Works have their crank displayed and also have a link just for the crankset at least as far back as Dec. 5, 2008.

  6. Well the TDF is before October, so if the 3D crank was in the 08 TDF that puts it before the EE crank. Even more so when you consider how many prototypes they probably went through to get there.
