    Vuelta Pista track crankset spec

    Does anyone know whether this crankset used a 3/32 or 1/8 chain? And what size bottom bracket for a 42mm chainline? I am building a fixie (cheap) on a Performance Scattante SSR frame. The frame calls for a 68mm bb. They are selling this crankset cheap at Nashbar.

    Nashbar's web site has a "Live Chat" link. Someone there should know the crank's specs.

    Or contact Vuelta directly:

    Vuelta USA
    12350 Montague St. Unit L
    Pacoima, CA 91331
    USA
    Bus: 818.686.3466 818.686.3466
    Fax: 818.686.3468
    Email: sales@vueltausa.com

    Their web site doesn't list that cranks but they certainly should know it's details.

    And isn't it amazing that a bike-specific site like Nashbar often does not list crucial info about their products? Several times through the years I have resisted buying something at the last second simply because I was not sure what it was. Its like buying something from a poorly informed Ebay seller.

    When in doubt, just get 1/8" chain as it will work with either 3/32" or 1/8" drivetrain components.

    +1. And just as importantly for the fixie crowd, you can get 1/8" chains in a wide variety of festive colors for $10-$15.
