Scrod - what say you about the Eighth Inch crankset that you currently have on sale? About on par with the stock cranks found on BD bikes, or a bit better?

I've never used it. It looks to be the same overall as the 130bcd Eighth Inch crank, which Angie has used and I've always thought is good for the price.

I used the 1/8" 130BCD crank and it's a lot nicer aesthetically and it was a hair rounder than the OEM crank that came on my BD bike. That said I eventually traded them for a WI freewheel when I switched to a set of Cooks RSR's I dug out my of the parts bin

scrod, just placed an order and left you a note about the dimension risers and chainring bolts we talked about

realized after i hit pay i probably shouldve had you send me the invoice first, not sure if this would create a problem

let me know if i screwed up

scrod, i am looking at the deluxe Andel and BB crankset http://www.retro-gression.com/produc...-crankset-w-bb

Can I assume this combo gives a 42mm chainline?

Thanks!

I've never actually measured but the bikes I've put them on have had straight chainlines.

scrod, thanks.

I realize the Deluxe set comes with a 48t chainring. I'm now looking at the 46t standard crankset with http://www.retro-gression.com/produc...track-crankset. I have a question about the silver color. Does it come with a grey chainring? I can't quite make it out on the site.

No, it's all silver. The entire crankset is available in grey though.

You'll have a tracking number today.

Thanks. I'll probably end up with silver. I wanted to combine orders with the V2/Twisted Pedals combo http://www.retro-gression.com/produc...twisted-pedals. When are you getting these back in stock?

Probably not for a few weeks. The batch we just made sold out much quicker than we had anticipated.

What did you order? We don't have a Saturday mail pickup so if it didn't go out Friday, it will go out Monday morning.
