    crank set for fixed gear - reccomendations?

    I ride a 42 in front and 15 in back, hope to keep it this way. I'm about 180 lbs. Was wondering if anyoine had any reccomendations for a crankset for me - someone suggested the Shimano Sora but I have heard they are quite heavy. Which is fine, I guess, but I would prefer to keep it on the light side. Also keep in mind I'm aiming for about $100.

    If you like the 42, I'd grab a NOS shimano 600 or DA square taper crank. Check out ebay, they can be had quite cheaply. They are light, solid and reliable. Easy to find 42T 130mm BCD rings too.

    Thanks for the tip, I found a set minus the chainring (DA) up on ebay for a nice price... keeping an eye on it.
