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)

Miche Primato Pista Cranks

I''m looking into getting these since they are easier to find and cheaper than campy cranks...I read some stuff while searching on them here...but anyone else have opinions on them and weither or not I should buy them. I'm looking to decide today.

Tons of info on a search.
I posted a similar thread about a week ago - mine should be here this week.
People seem to love them.

Only issue is the 135BCD, so you're limited in your chainring selection, but you can get Miche in 46t-52t, so it shouldn't be an issue.
Also, the ISO taper they require also limits your BB selection to Miche, Campy or Phil - not too shabby of choices, however - and the Miche is only $25 and of fairly nice quality.

I had a pair for a little while and thought they were pretty good for the money. A little flexy, but a solid upgrade, especially if you think you might be upgrading to campy down the line (which is why I got the miche)
