^ yeah man, very unfortunate. It was a pretty great look.
Have to say, it's been hard to get my hands on decent black cranks.
I was hesitant about getting Omniums due to potential for clearance issues but by chance I found Sugino had listed their remaining DD1 stock at a discount. Still not cheap, mind, but peace of mind. Don't reckon I will complain much about this setup.
Hopefully have some time this weekend to do the axle swap and put it all together.
