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)

bottom bracket question

my 2007 Madison has a Truvativ Cartridge square taper 68x108 bottom bracket... i was told that if I want to use BMX cranks all I need to find is a euro BB...true? I was looking at this one - think it'll work?

true enough. but it's a cool orange profile chainring. I like the look plus it should be fairly indestructible.
