Stiff. So peppy and responsive.

So I never thought I could swap out a part on my bike and feel immediately shocked. This crank did it though. I had just come from a 7800 Dura-Ace SRM crank, when I went to a Stages Power meter version of this Dura-Ace 9000. The quickness and stiffness of the arms was immediately shocking in my first turn and acceleration out of the neighborhood on my first ride. Months later, I still remember the sensation of me looking down in wonderment at my bottom bracket and crank, wondering what on earth could cause what felt like, a 300% boost in crank stiffness. 1600 miles on it since march 2013.
