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)

So, having the "P" logo makes them single speed specific?

But seriously, they are obviously OEMs, so get whatever is cheapest.

They look fairly similar to sugino cranks, but they are cheaper. Does anyone know who makes them? I

Huh? What does "OEM" have to do with anything?

I think he means they're just something else rebadged. I don't know enough parts to say what, though. RD's maybe? Pedal hole looks a little different.

those pakes are made by an 'associate' of SOMA (look up the pake frame on the SOMA fab website). not the same brand, and i don't think repackaged version of another brand. can't speak to the quality tho, haven't tried 'em.

I have em on mine. They're cheap. They work. It's just a road double.
