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)

"RPM" crank (versus "iro" crank)

in the "build kit" at this time, iro offers a black crank labelled "rpm" for the 165 and 170 length option, and the "iro" crank for the 175 length option. this begs the question: does anyone know how the rpm crank compares to the iro crank? or how the rpm cranks performs in general? thanks.

RPM is pretty standard on a lot of entry level Fixies. I think Fuji has the Truvativ (double converted for SS) crank now, but they used to have RPM's on them. There's nothing special about them, but I haven't heard of any issues (similar to the IRO crank).
