I am thinking about trading an extra set of wheels with weinman dp17 rims for either of these
1. specialized carbon stem and fsa road carbon pro team issue crank
2. vigorelli track crank with isis bb
Whats the better deal? Is there really any difference between a track crank and a road crank with just one chain ring?

The vigorelli crank is ugly and is purported to cause impotence. The ISIS drive BB will wear and develop play and the crank will eventually crack and fall off while you are riding in traffic.
Seriously though, speaking from a pretty uninformed viewpoint, I'd go with the first choice...just 'cause
That's odd I thought the were called "Track" Cranks because they were meant for the "Track" and not on the road where there's traffic, just like how brakes are not allowed on the track.:crash:
