Crankset

So my frame takes a 68 x 120 mm bb, what's a decent crankset or crank/bb combo. I'm looking for sturdiness to do tricks and jumps, any help is appreciated.

your frame does not determine spindle length...you need match the bb & the cranks

You probably want Cheap stuff, If you are going to beat it Up. 68 is the BB shell Width..

go see what your LBS Has .. a Generic, Origin 8* perhaps, a square taper BMX '3 piece'
with a long enough axle to get the chainline right.

since I cannot see squat, go into a Bike Shop and they can see what you have.

* dependent on what distributor lines they carry.
