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)

White Industries ENO SS Cranks

I like.

A lot.

Would this work well for fixed gear drivetrains under backpedalling pressure ("look ma, no spider!") Seems kind of sketchy but is it worth the risk for a bit of bling?

The splined interface between the crank arm and chainwheel is pretty beefy.

If you're really worried about it, look into the Paul Pure Road Crank, which has a different interface and uses chainring bolts. Plus, it has the option for the Royal Flush pattern.

Paul's doesn't come in all silver and uses a 1/8" chain, I believe (although it's just as attractive.)

They are plenty beefy and get used on lots of fixed gear bikes. A couple of my friends who own a shop run them, and love them. I'll probably get them for my next bling build. And they're pretty cheap for bling at that.

Do it.
