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)

Shimano Dura Ace 7701 for a fixed setup??

This is my first project, so I'm still rather new, but would this Dura Ace 7701 crankset work for a fixed, or do you think the 172.5 may scrape on turns? I found 'em on ebay. Thanks.

Depends on your frame. If its a road conversion your BB may be low enough that youll have easy pedal strike. I have 172s on a track frame and they work fine for me. The center of my BB is only an inch and a half (or so) below my axles.

It's a Centurion road frame, size 53. and I assume I would be using the Shimano BB.
