I got all my parts in today, now I just need to bring the bike in and have the bike shop install stuff.
Maxxis Highroller semi-slick tire, $14 on JensonUSA (I installed this, against the will of the sidewalls.)
FSA V-drive extreme crankset, 3-ring, $98 on Ebay.
Poverty Peddler pedals, $17 on Danscomp.
Here are the pedals and cranks:
I can't wait to get them installed and go for a ride to test everything out :)

Don't recognize the pedals, but the cranks rule :) Congrats

Removeable\ replaceable pins are cool. Take out of one side for the urban grind.
I've lost a few pins, ground threads off the ends of screws and presto.

Awesome stuff you got there!!! back in my bmx days i had a poverty with those pedals on it. THey were really grippy and not too big and im really picky about pedals. Those high rollers take a bit of fighting with to get on the rim but they are sooooo worth it :)

Got everything installed, and got it back from the shop yesterday. I got to do some riding in town, and everything seems pretty cool so far. The pedals grip better, and they feel a little more secure because they cover more of your foot. The cranks and BB, I can't really feel a huge difference... then again, I hadn't ridden for a while before I got the parts installed.
Here's the pictures with the parts installed:
