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)

Campy BMX Cranks?

A couple of years ago, a kid at my then-lbs told me that Campagnolo was making anodized BMX cranks again. That shop (Jones Bikes in LB) had an old Mongoose Moose Goose restored with them, gold, and they looked pretty nice. I also saw a blue pair on someone's TT bike a few months ago.

Now I want a set, but during my searches I haven't found a thing. Does anyone know if they're still being made and where one could purchase them?

I don't they will put into production again, but if you do find them, they will be NOS and expensive.

They came in blue, gold and silver (rare). I have a set of silver cranks and owned all 3 cranksets.

S/F,

I bought a pair last year from trackstar and I believe I paid $250 with the chainring. They are not being made again but a stash of NOS came onto the market a couple of years ago that were buried away at a disributors. They are stamped STRADA on the back of the arm but I am pretty sure they are the same as the PISTA arms.
