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)

Miche Pista Crankset/bb for 90$?

Should I snag these for 90 bucks? I'm replacing the crank on my peugeot and this deal popped up. The price seems good, but how would it compare to something like Sugino 75's, etc.

Thanks brosephs.

I figured i could gain more by searching, but I'm in a recording session and these will probably get snatched up fast, so I couldn't take the time, thanks for the vote of confidence in the cranks!

Well, i waited all night to get an e-mail back, to no avail.
He called me the next morning while I was at work and left a message asking when ic ould pick up, and then I called back within an hour(first chance I had) and he sold them to someone.

Bummer, for sure. My crank search will continue.

I haven't ruled out sugino 75's or something, but I really don't want to spend 160.

That's what you get for wasting your time asking BF.

I bought my set w/ BB used for 150 and still think I got a good deal, considering the performance and the adjustable chainline on the BB.

track cranks are generally a waste of money, especially if you buy ones with an obscure bcd like miche has

used road cranks provide a far far better value, and are far superior in many ways to track cranks

obviously, but i also knew i'd only really have competition from people in the cities, since most people on CL won't ship, with good reason.

Really? Even though he didn't even respond to me the same night that i posted this(and I already explained this)? My confirming of the quality of a product I previously had little knowledge of had no impact whatsoever on the missed purchase of the item. My being at work and responding as soon as I could was the cause.
