    Sugino RD. Looks good, works well. Not too expensive. Hipsters can't stand it when they've spent big bucks on their ride and they still can't get as many women as the guy with the RD cranks and a real job.

    Sugino 75. Looks good, works well. Kind of expensive. Real guys can't stand it when they've spent only a small amount of money on their ride and they can't fit as many track chainrings as the guy with 75 cranks and no life.

    What a horribly ambiguous question. With no information about what it will be used for, relative budget in mind, or any regards to what the poster thinks looks 'good'.

    Honestly go to a bike shop and look around, or if there is no good shops for such a thing in your area then try using google for 5 minutes.

    It depends on the bike but I really like Sugino 75s, Dura-Ace Track and FSA Carbon Pro Track (in terms of looks). I've heard bad things about the FSA in terms of durability, though.

    ^Way facking cool, but don't look like 144bcd. Not a big deal, just sayin'.

    edit: also paul cranksets, if you can afford it. A little pricey.

    hmm, I should say "best looking crank for a single speed, 29er, rigid mtb"

    Sorry for the confusion

    It's 130, so I figured it was a SS crank as asked for by the OP.

    Edit: guess the OP wanted MTB, I have nothing worthwhile for that.

    Ha ha ha, yeah, disregard just about every suggestion in this thread so far.

    I've heard mixed reviews of the Truvativ Stylos. Nothing looks better than Profiles, IMHO.

    White Industries ENO cranks look awesome, but the proprietary chainring thing is just dumb.

    Marquee, do you know who sells that ENO crank? It's the first I've seen it. Lovely.

    I ride with a Stronglight 130bcd crank on my Pista, and, for the money I don't see anything lighter or stronger, and it has a nice finish on both sides.

    On my Karate Monkey 29er fixed gear ice bike, I ride with a Truvativ Stylo.
    My lbs swears by this crank and I like the way it looks and functions.
