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)

SRAM entering the track components market

SRAM is due to release a track specific crank and others parts later on this year. OEM providers get first dibs but the general market will be able to purchase aftermarket parts in the near future. MSRP is not yet stated and no information is available on their homepage, yet.

To get a quick look, check out the new cranks on the 2007 Bianchi Pistas: http://www.bianchiusa.com/07_pista_concept.html

That's okay, I brained myself on the bathroom door this morning. Now I have a demon horn.

Am I the only who thinks that 2 piece track cranks are a bad idea? Good for stiffening up steel frames and what not, but about adjustment? I mean you can't use different BBs like on the old standard to get your chainline correct...

Virtually all real track stuff is 42mm, futzing with chainline is for clowns like me who run conversions and road cranks and stuff.

Same here, I'm just saying that only for this kind of stuff do you need to futz with BB lengths, for track cranks you just buy the crank and the right BB and forget it.
