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)

167.5mm cranks

Who rides them...and what crankset are you running?

I am thinking of both track amd mtb, so if anyone knows such a crank with a small BCD even better!

D/A and Sugino track cranks come in 167.5, but they're 144. Miche Primato Pista is 135 BCD and comes in 167.5.

I use an old set of Sugino Super Mighty cranks in 167.5. They are 144bcd.

I have 167.5 Dura-Ace Track cranks on my Pulse. They're bad ass, but yeah, 144 BCD, so not much help. Is 2.5 mm either way really that critical for you? There are a few non-144 BCD cranks that come in 165, 170, 172.5... (skipping the 167.5 size).

Using 167.5 for MTB? Is this fixed? I hope so.
