I can afford a Sugino 75 crankset and BB. Though spending 344 dollars on a crankset/chainwheel/bb isn't ideal.
http://store.somafab.com/sohetrcr.html - Is the Soma Hellyer comparable even if it's not on the same level as a 75 would it be fairly close?
Any other Crankset/bb you would recommend that is pretty nice but not so expensive?
Any nice road crank. Or you could just not buy the 75 BB. I would rather have a sealed unit anyway.
Paul 100% Road Crank. 110.5mm Phil Wood bottom bracket. Brooks B67 saddle.
I can think of other things to blow 4 bills on, but none gave me better satisfaction.
I could be wrong but I think those are overpriced Andel/Alien cranks. I have a pair in blk and silver. I don't race on the velodrome but they have done me fine on the streets thus far. They don't use sg75/njs bb so thats helps a bit in price. I don't like the chaingring so I changed mine out to a sugino and a superbe. They look good, function well and are priced right. Just my thoughts, think what you want.
*you can check them on my velospace link below :)
I am using some old Dura Ace road cranks right now; I can't tell the difference from the old sugino track cranks I used to use.

75's can be had for much cheaper than what you mentioned if you look around and find a used set. I've seen the cranks used for like 140, rings for like, 50 or 60 and then get a sealed bottom bracket unit for like 30 and you are set for less than 250.
yeah you have to break it up with the heel of your boot before you bag it and sell it
