What's the story with the crankset?

The crankset was manufactured by PMP and were designed with the intention of creating more power at curtain points in the revolution, there's be lots of argument as to whether this works or not or was just a quickie idea, but still they look great and are an unusual NOS find & the sort of part the TT rider would have tried back in the early 80's !
Thanks for your interest

Whoa, that's crazy sounding. Sounds kinda like those Bio-pace chainrings. How does it feel to actually spin this up?

Hi Monoglaze

I am building an old Peugot Bike and I am planing to use a bullhorn handlebar and Campagnolo Ergopower leavers as well. How did you manage to hide the cables? They come out of the leavers on the top and in the technical handbook it says: " At all
costs avoid kinks or sharp bends in the housing (less than
R = 50 mm)."
Thanks for your help!

Yeah I would not suggest using Sti's on bullhorns where the cable come through the back of the lever as it can cause gears to hop or stick!
The only way to get bullhorns to work with Sti's was for the first 100mm from lever use brake cable outer then using a cable joiner back to gear cable this isn't ideal but you can get away with it.
The only real successful way is the right way to use bull horns would be to use your downtube shifters and brakes levers on the bullhorns! This is why I've changed all of my Lo-pro"s to now and it works perfectly looping the brake cable out the top of lever then in to the end of Bullhorn!
You can see some of my bikes on instagram changed to the downtube & looped brake cable. I hope this was of some help.
