IRO Drivetrain kit
The crank on my Fixie died, so I replaced it with a super cheap BMX crank. However, the chainline is ****ed with those cranks - if I don't use spacers, the ring sits further out than the outer position on my old cranks, but the base of the crank is nearly touching the BB.
Anyways, I want new cranks. And my cog is due for replacement anyways. Soo I was thinking of getting the IRO drivetrain kit. For $125USD, you get IRO track cranks, 46th ring, new BB, Soma cog of your choice, lockring, and track chain. It's all 1/8th. This seems like an awesome deal, and I have IRO hubs already and love them.
Has anyone used any of these components? Happy with them (particularly the cranks)? Are there other similar setups or deals I should be considering?
Thanks for the input.
