We've been testing the Velo Orange Grand Cru crankset for a few months now, with great results--until this past weekend, when a thorough cleaning and examination of the big ring turned up a bent tooth (photo below). We checked with Velo Orange, who confirmed that this is not normal (we thought perhaps it was a special tooth profile to assist in shifting) and suggested we bend it back. We did that--gently--and we'll report on how it works as time goes by. For the record, the bike has not hit anything that we know of that could have bent the tooth.
The bent tooth is visible in the center of this photo--it is canted a bit to the inside.
Full disclosure--we paid full retail price for this crankset.
