    New news on cranks

    In the world of slow moving things, Iím doing a slow build on this bike:



    And Iím down to cranks. Iíve been thinking of a Philwood BB and a Sugino 75 crank: but getting the cranks polished before they go on. Is there anything out there thatís new, perhaps better (stiffer, mainly) and not so but ugly? I donít want anything carbon at all.

    Any help, assistance, appreciated.
    Regards,

    i think that black sugino 75's would look great on that.

    i was under the impression that 75's weren't all that good looking, until i saw them up close. the clean lines have really grown on me.

    I don't have a current photo. I don't even have my regular bike with me. I'm about as far from them as I can be and still be on the planet.

    How do/did you feel about those bars? I'm thinking about switching, but someone told me they're very flexy and my current bars aren't flexy at all.

    Any one else have input?

    V - I've never ridden with them.

    I currently (well, when at home) ride flip and chopped drops. So I have no input.

    WK,

    Besides the standard offerings of Sugino/Campy/Shimano, the ones that I like are the Spťcialitťs T.A.

    Business Cycles Shot

    Peter White has them for sale

    Closeup and on-the-bike shots here

    I really like their clean chainring bolts. They sink flat into the outside of the chainring.

    As far as what Business Cycles says about chainline issues - I had no problems with that install using a Phil BB.
    Moyer Cycles: done and done.

    WK, I have an older version of the TA crank with a Phil BB. They are stiff enough for me.

    Biff: They are pretty much exactly what I had envisioned. Beefy looking but nothing seriously over the top.

    I'd also say that the picture you linked is possibly my favorite shot of a track bike not in motion.

    If you can, tell Jason I said hello, I lost his email address and I'm pretty much remiss when it comes to regular contact anyway. He (and you and anyone) can check the new blog for my mis adventures.

    But the TA cranks are now the ones.

    Have you seen the 75's in person? They're actually very nice looking, I quite like them, and never really liked the TA ones...

    I am around 200 lb. My Cranks are on an older version. The arms are fluted though.

    Self impossed exile because I wasn't playing well with others here. One day I went back and read what I wrote and realized, I'm a dick sometimes. Though, I tend to be the same way in person.

    Then I left the states. And now I have only short windows of internet connectivity. Probably loose this good connection today for about a month.

    Did you get the shirt?

    I can't help you with the crank question but that bike is awesome.

    Reminds me of the time I had to do a major oral presentation about indigenous wildlife of australia for a college evolution class, and I got so bored halfway through it that I started making up facts just to see if my teacher was smart enough to catch on...she wasn't

    "The thylacinth (sic?) was regretably hunted to extinction by a bloodthirsty tribe of cannibal maori tribesmen who prized the hide for use in elaborate ceremonial headresses...much like the notorious finnish dwarves who hunted the snow leopard to near extinction"

    I think I watched zoolander the night before.

    In fact, I did not.
    You sent me a shirt?

    Thanks!

    Actually Jacob is the guy you're thinking of. Jason is a different guy....but Jacob got a frame too.

    Jacob's in your neck of the woods actually. He's going to Stanford now. When you're finished with your 6 months of gallivanting on the high seas, and if you find yourself up in that area, throw him an email.
