They're a bit busy for my tastes. Have you used the QRings yet? If so, how do you like them? How about the Revl brakes? Have you used those yet? If you haven't used either, you should come back and give a report on how the QRings and Revl brakes work. Nice job on the bike.
If you're interested, here's a link to Fair Wheel Bikes crank shootout: http://fairwheelbikes.com/cycling-blog/products/fair-wheel-crank-test-4.html .

Q-Rings are ace... apart from after 190 miles in the hills and all notion of a smooth pedalling action has left the building - then they can feel a little "choppy" if you try and pedal fast. The only downside I've seen so far is that they're a bit of a pain to find the right position (the 130bcd have 5 postions the 110bcd only 3) - a time consuming but simple process if you have a power meter.

You're really doing yourself a disservice if you're not using your Q-Rings with Powercranks. Honest. Really.

I have had the q-rings on my PowerCranks ;)

But the cranks were in lock-out mode (fixed) - I wanted to try something with regards to crank length. The fully adjustable PowerCranks go from 90mm to 220mm.

... And yes, for shits and giggles I did have a ride with those cranks in independant (powercrank) mode. How could I not give it a ride even though I knew it'd be weird :)

That's a nice looking bike with an even better looking gruppo. Which Campy gruppo is that? Now that you've joined us in the Campy Club, you'll be eligible for all manner of special treatment. For instance, at gentlemen's clubs, the dancers will show things that the other, non-Campy owners aren't allowed to see.
