    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.)

    GL with the chainrings.

    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.
