    Ultra-Torque vs Power-Torque Athena Crankset

    Hi all. I'm about to pull the trigger on my Lynskey Pro-Cross build.
    I've been seeing some great deals on the Athena Ultra-Torque Carbon Crankset in the 53-39 only.
    I believe this was from 2010. From the specs it's heavier then the current Athena Power-Torque carbon crankset.
    Then there is the current 2013 Power-Torque alloy.
    With the two later ones the compact 54-30 is available.
    Any ideas?

    Is this a cross bike?

    If so, take a look also at the cross-specific cranks and BB's recently introduced.

    Or if you would prefer UT cranks, the well known auction site will lead to a number of options. Hint - 10 speed cranks will work fine.

    There's sometimes a buggy.
    How many drivers does a buggy have?
    One.
    So let's just say I'm drivin' this buggy...
    and if you fix your attitude you can ride along with me.

    I also posted this in the Campagnolo forum. Admin's please delete.

    I posted on another forum as well. In short, the PT require specialized tools to pull the crank, about $120 worth. The UT require just a 10mm allen and the wrench for the BB cups, a lot less $$. If you do your own work, this might be important. If not, no big deal.
