Got a Redline 925 which came stock with some FSA Vero Cranks. Was wondering if it's possible to replace preferably the arms only with something a little nicer. Be great if I could use the current stock bottom bracket and chainring and just put on some some nicer, straighter (I don't really dig the curved crank arms) that would still allow the same alignment etc.
I think they are 130 BCD. Would something like Sugino Messenger arms work or do they need a new BB?

Get some track cranks...sugino 75's,truvativ omniums,dura ace 130bcd is only good for so much..144bcd ftw

I'll buy your Veros if they're in good shape.

Are you cranks giving you any problems? Can you see the ugly curve while riding? If not, it's not worth your money to upgrade.
130bcd is fine for every road bike out there, and plenty of pro's use 110bcd. Nothing special about 144bcd, except the inability to run anything smaller than 40 teeth.

it probably has a jis square taper btm bracket if so . I would rock some soma hellyer cranks . I love mine. I did replace the chainring for something a lil more trackish though.
