Got mine a long while back, but still in the process of building it up. Haven't made up my mind about them cranks. I certainly can't put converted road doubles there. With a 103 mm spindle, they'd catch the chainstays.
Anyone had any issues achieving a good chainline?
The cheapest crank with a 144bcd is Andel and people have said good things about them. Other options would probably be Omniums, which don't have so solid rep or Miche primato pista, which apparently has troubles with the bb unscrewing itself.
im extremely happy with my Carnival cranks. they come with an adjustable external BB bottom bracket. coolest crank ive owned
Decided to post my build here as this thread was really helpful. Took a while to put this together tho. Been riding it on the streets for a few weeks. Quite fun, but I hope I can take it to a velodrome some time sooner or later.
Looks great! You might want to also post it here >>> http://www.bikeforums.net/showthread...P-track-frames
i got visp frame set 3 weeks ago and i just assemble it today but the problem is the headset is kindda loosen and it's not fit. what do i do? can i replace with the new headset?
Sorry to drag this topic from the back of the lot but I'm looking to see if anyone has (if it's even possible) built this into a road-bike and not just a single speed. Looking for a cheap frame to start building my bike and I'm still unsure about the fixie scene so I am going to hopefully build a 27 or 30 speed road-bike and i'm hoping i can use this frame.
Visp do a fairly similar road frame. I was contemplating one to turn into a low cost TT bike using another bike's running gear. Seeing a discussion in Aust referring to the frame and the ebay feedback relating to poor QC has seen me looking elsewhere.
