Check with your LBS. Both Stein and VAR make a kit for repairing stripped out cranks and installing one-key releases. If they have one, the repair may be a lot cheaper than replacing, depending on the quality of the crankset. Minor thread damage can sometimes be repaired with a crank arm chaser sold by Bicycle Research.
