    Hollowgram Si vs Carbon Si?

    Hey guys,

    Just looking at the 2006 six13's and I was hoping you would help me understand the difference between the Hollowgram Si cranks/Carbon Si cranks. I realize that one is carbon, and the other is not, but do both use the larger BB shell? Outboard bearings and one piece crank? I noticed on the six13 site that europeans get spec'd the hollowgram si w/ their DA bikes, whereas north american bikes get the carbon. How do they compare to outboard bearing/one piece crank models from shimano and fsa?


    On a semi related note, currently riding an '05 TCR comp1, and looking into getting either an '06 Giant advanced or six13 team DA. Anyone have experience on the tcr's, advanced, six13's, and caad8's?

    Thanks for you help.

    Okay here is the short version.

    The Alloys are lighter, and stiffer.

    The Carbon Cranks are pretty light, and pretty stiff.

    I have the carbons. I like the alloy version too. The cabon looks cool with my bike. It still weighs in at around 16 pounds.
