Thanks to a lively comment from one of our more knowledgeable readers, we discovered that the curved cranks shown in the post below are, in fact, not anything new.

The original PMP design, shown above, was released in 1981 and used by the Polish Olympic team (really?I can’t make this stuff up.). Bike Nashbar, etc., blows them out years later, likely below cost.

Maybe they didn’t catch on because they were so darn expensive, especially for 1981!
