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)

More opinions on Miche cranks

So, I can get a pair of lightly used Miche Primato cranks with chainring for $75. Wholesale on a new set is 130ish, which I can also get. BBs are 13 bucks wholesale. I hear they aint the best quality, but at that price I could swap em out at a decent regularity. Basically, users impressions of this crankset?

Ahem, search. They're a forum favorite and you can't go wrong. There was a topic about them recently. I don't own them myself, but I've read many glowing reviews. Go go for the lightly used ones and the BB.

See what you can get the phil BB for, probably cheaper in the long run if it lasts forever.

They sure look pretty in the box.
As soon as the BB gets off backorder, I'll let you know how they ride.

i just installed Miche crank with BB on my conversion. I rode it this weekend and thought they were great. They were stiff and responsive and they also look nice. For that price i would go for it.
