    I did not read all of the posts here but it's really nice to see this thread.

    I have searched much and looking for a crank for my 1997 DBR Racing response, brushed 7005 aluminum.

    One of the last real DBR's.

    20 years and it's still all original and I have put many miles on it.

    I need a crank and cannot find it anywhere.

    The crank is not really that bad but getting to the point of too loose.

    It's not super high end but I really love the bike and it's super balanced and a great bike.

    Any input will be greatly appreciated!

    What thread pitch / count is your bottom bracket shell ?
    (There`s a number of choices....French, Italian, English, Japanese/SAE, etc.
    Seems crazy that the human mind could make such a relatively simple thing so friggin` complicated, eh ? :)

    long time no post - here is the semifinal of the bike I build for a syrian student here in Berlin. Semi - he shall ride it till fall from now for having time for some tuning - and then will get paintjob (RAL-color oriental red matte) in winter.
    designed by Peter Grisley, a Grisley Mega10

    Found the frame for him in the classifieds and built it with DX groupset. The fork is bit too modern Manitou Elite and I had to modify a little for canti-use. But - I wanted to use up some parts i had in stock. Opposing to the fat look it is quite light. It's in main for city use - I told him if he wants go to countryside/offroad to stock a second wheelset.

    it even rides very nice - and compared to the all-look-same-bikes of tooday it is really an eyecatcher.

    Just bought this specialized epic m4 2 days ago as a birthday present for myself. Its basically stock. Asides from the chain snapping 30ft from my house when I went to take it for a ride its in pretty good condition for being 13 years old and the purpose for which it was built for.

    We added a new Roll to the fleet this summer. I kept thinking about buying myself a second Specialized, used, as a project bike, but I am now leaning more towards upgrading my primary bike to carbon fiber (probably one of the Sirrus Carbon models) and using my Crosstrail Disc as the spare. The clunky old Schwinn steel frame has to go. ;) I didn't mind cleaning up the Crossroads Sport for my daughter, but these days I don't want to be screwing around messing with a bike--I just want to ride.
