good triple cranks for friction drivetrain?
i'm on a pretty tight budget and not prone to saving, so i've been slowly swapping out bits on my old road bike (70s kabuki) with a vision of a randonneur type setup in the end. *let me underline that i am very new to cycling and am learning as i go.* aaaanywho... at this point i'm focused on my drivetrain. i'm looking for reliable parts i can buy one by one, and thus break up the cost. i'm also kind of hoping that i can end up with something kind of pretty/classic looking, but i'm willing to flex in favor of reliability and price if necessary. i like the look of the velo orange triple cranks—the product descriptions sound great, and they are definitely pretty, but i've never heard any feedback about them. any opinions on velo orange, or suggestions of comparable triples? i will also, eventually, be upgrading my rims, hubs and cassette (running a 28 spoke 5 speed freewheel at present), so any suggestions for what to look for in the future are appreciated as well. i got a good deal on a suntour v gt luxe derailleur that i'm sitting on right now, but i don't have my heart set on using it.
