Crescent/Commie R20 Redo
To make a long story short, the Commie R20 thread got me wanting to do more modifications on my Crescent Separable.
At the point that my Crescent is at right now, I believe the greatest improvement to the ride would be to replace the one piece crank and bottom bracket, or at least open her up, get new bearings, and repack it all with grease. What do you guys think?
If I decide to try to convert the Crank, I have these two posibilities:
While I would like to use the more modern of the two, I don't even know if it will fit on my bike. The second one with the cones is probably the safer choice. Any thoughts? Here's the pic of the bike as it stands now:

After that, I would finish the upgrade process by:
1. Adding MKS detachable pedals
2. Switching to 451 rims/tires: Single speed flipflop
3. Adding a dual caliper road style break to the front.
4. Use Jur's stem fix on his R20 to get more stretched out
5. Adding drop bars
6. New Paint
Any suggestions are welcome!
