A short inquiry to Kirk Pacenti about the eeCranks project led us to this teaser shot of his forthcoming chainrings. Other than the obvious wide/narrow tooth pattern, he’s not really giving up details until next week. We also found some hub shell images on his Facebook page, leading us to think he’s been quite busy this summer readying both a new website and a new product line.
About the eeCranks, his response was simply: “I’ve pulled the plug on the crank project” and told BR&IN that while he thinks the design offers the best stiffness to weight ratio of anything on the market, he simply doesn’t have time to give the project the attention it deserves. Unfortunately, we haven’t heard back from eeCycleworks’ founder Craig Edwards about the fate of the cranks, but we get the sense they’ll see the light of day eventually.
Pics of the hubs below…
Pacenti says these will finish production and start shipping in October.
