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)

Does anyone manufacture cranks like these new

http://images.andale.com/f2/115/106/...cranks_170.jpg

I like the channels on the crankarm--but I'd rather buy new cranks than shell out for vintage campy
or even vintage sugino or suntour

If you are persistent, you can get a set for the price of the ritchey ones, and they look way cooler. Stronglight, SR, Sugino, Nervar, Zeus, Tourney, etc all made versions of them. Just hold out.

keep your eye on ebay for a Campagnolo Victory crank. I got one NOS for $60. Road not track, but it's Campagnolo and has the flutes.

Don't be foolish. The photo of the Kooka was my addition. I am comparing the Kooka to the OP's link.

Man, if you judge everything on that, there is nothing left to like. During that era everything mimicked everything else to the point where it was hard to tell who started it. Do early Superbe cranks suck cause they look like campy? Zeus cranks looked like campy, but there are a ton of people who will tell you they were better.
