Cannondale's New One-Piece Carbon Crank

Looks like Cannondale will be introducing a new one-piece hollow carbon composite crank system soon.  Based on this patent application, it looks like there will be a bolt on bottom housing that will eliminate the need for a bottom bracket system (i.e., no BB30).  Here's a picture from the patent application:

In other news, the patent application for Cannondale's folding Jackknife concept just published here.  Hopefully we'll be seeing the bike below on sale soon.
