    External Bearing Cranks ... trying to put together a list of options

    Okay, what are some that you can think of? I'm interesting in track-specific or fixed/singlespeed in general. Even if it's a road double that's commonly marketed w/ one singlespeed ring, that's fine.

    Bontrager GXP track. Comes on the 06 fillmore. I believe that they are made by Truvativ. I can't give an opinion. I've only had my Fillmore for 3 days and 35 miles. They are nice looking and seem stiff enough for my taste.

    -The new SRAMs that are on the '07 concept(whenever you can find them).
    -Unfortunately campy has decided to cater to the luddites again this year so no luck there

    If you go with any of the doubles or triples you are going to have to respace the rear wheel and not use a flip flop.

    -FSA I think has DH cranks that come with only one ring on them so I guess that fits your specifications.

    Campy is putting their new cranks out in 07.

    As for doubles and so on. Just properly space the chainring (Hint: Close to the frame), and your fine.

    Respace?? Or redish?

    met a guy from SRAM/TruVaTiv in the airport today on his way to interbike.
    He said the external bearing crank that is being used on the 07 P-cocept is a converted road crank...not track specific.
