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)

Will these cranks fit??

Hey, I have a French fixie conversion from 1970. It's got a Stronglight BB and the width of the spindle is 120, regular square tapered. I currently have an old pair of Sugino 144 BCD cranks on there. Do you guys think that these will fit? Thanks for any help.

I forgot to mention, the Sugino cranks that I have are the "Super Mighty" ones. 170 length.

pretty sure they will, so long as the square tapers match crank to bb.. if youve got suginos with square taper and are looking to use another set of suginos that also have square taper i dont think an issue will arise.

huh. i didnt look close enough, sorry. i'd still imagine that square taper is square taper... but that might be a mighty big assumption on my part. theres got to be a bunch of people out there that know bmx cranks and bbs.

Put that chainring on the outside of the spider. That will make it look MUCH more presentable, maybe even pretty.

Unless, of course, your chainline necessitates it.

The seller indicates that the CS includes a NOS spindle and bearings why not use the one that comes with it?
