Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

anyone seen a deal on track cranks lately?

i'm in the market for track cranks - pretty open as to the brand or if they're new or used.

165 or 167.5mm. preferably 144bcd, but i'm not too stuck on that.

i've combed over the usual sites and ebay, but it just seems to be the same old stuff at the standard high prices everywhere.

anyone seen any great deals lately?

New 05 Campy Pista crankset w/ chainring for $150. eBay. I got it like 5 minutes after it was listed, though. But the deals are out there.

IRO sells a pretty decent crankset for ~$80 with a 46t chainring. I don't think it's 144bcd though.

It's a 130bcd. I have this crankset on my mk V and I can't believe how nice the finish is on it considering the price. Count me as happy with this crankset.
