Which cranks to keep? Sugino 75 vs. Miche
I have been slowly accumulating parts to build up a track bike. I was looking for a bare frame for a while, but when a deal came along on a complete 2004 KHS flite I figured I should give up the search and just buy the bike, tear it apart and build it back together the way I want.
I already know that I'm going to sell the stock wheels (anyone want to buy them?) and replace them with a Promax/open pro set I picked up a while ago.
The bars are being replaced with a set of Nitto B123 Cro-Mos
But I can't decide what to do about the cranks. Its currently got the Sugino 75 cranks on there, but I have a brand new set of Miche Primatos and an extra Miche chainring lying in the basement. And I know if I have an extra crank lying around, I'll just want to build up another bike.
So keep the Sugino's for the all-Japanese theme?
Or the Miche for the multiple gearing options on the cheap?
Too bad track season is pretty much over. I'm going to have to wait until fall to ride this thing.
