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)

I don't think you can beat them for the price. You can get them and a BB on eBay for $100. I've never used them before, but I'm thinking of getting a set for my beater.

1/8th and 3/32 are the thickness, not the pitch. All bike chains are a 1/2" pitch. Except for the old 1" pitch that nobody uses anymore.

As was already mentioned, it's 3/32. I get the impression that they're just road cranks that happen to create a straight chainline for fg/ss applications... The Ben's Cycle eBay page says that a second chainring can be added to create a road double. I could be wrong though...

yeah I did look up Sugino XD's and they are normally sold as a road double. I should buy one and tell Bens Bikes to give me the spare chainring they stripped off of it. haha.
Or maybe they get them from Sugino as singles.

cool, thanks for the info and correct use of terminology.
I should totally have known / caught that. ha.

I had a feeling they're 3/32 since the same cranks came
on my wifes bianchi. oh well, I guess I could use my existing
1/8th rocket ring since it's got both 110 / 130 bcd.

thanks gain for everyone's input.

hey papalok, I think we're living in parallel universes. I'm going through the
exact same thing on an 02' pista with the stock "cyclone" cranks. once I changed
over to 1/8" drivetrain it's been a cluster****. I'm now on the inside of the spider
with like a couple mm between chainring and chainstay. makes me nervous.
and now I wanna play with different sized chainrings and it's all f.u.b.a.r.

sounds like the xd's + new bb might be the ticket though. thanks for posting this.

Are sugino xd cranks listed as symmetrical? I'm using a shimano 113 bb and my left crank arm sticks farther out then the right.
