    sure, why not? money does grow on trees nowadays, right?

    seriously though, seems like a good, not great, price based on the current market.

    Yeah, it's either that, or save up a little more, buy some DA hubs, and build new wheels.

    The guy just emailed me back and said it's a Shimano BB. It does come with the 75 chainring. So it's the cranks, a Shimano BB, and the 75 chainring for $200.

    No deal. Shimano BBs are cheap and aren't even the right taper for 75s.

    no deal

    why would you pay 175$ for a set of cranks and then put them on a cheaper bb to save 50$

    Definetly not that good of a deal. I have seen sugino cranks go for much cheaper on ebay.

    While the whole taper thing is debatable, it's pure ignorance to claim Shimano BB are cheap. Assuming we're talking UN5X or 7X series, these are some of the most dependable brackets out there.

    Of course they don't score hipster mileage points, but hipster points can't be traded in for maintenance either.

    Actual, the taper issue shows ignorance. The angle of the taper is the same regardless of whether it is ISO or JIS. The point in question is the length of engagement.

    Cranks without the ring. The rings usually go for about $80ish new.

    Not an excellent deal but I'd personally do it.

    Exactly. The 75 BB is higher quality than the shimano bb, although not as low-maintenance. A sealed bearing bb like the shimano is great for the street but IMHO is not worth $200 with the cranks/ring.

    I must have misread this
    Shimano BBs are cheap
    Define a bottom bracket made specifically for the crank. Assuming the bracket give the proper chainline, how is it any better or worse?

    i guess you did misread, since im not the one who said it

    same chainline, same taper, same quality

    sugino 75 BB made specifically for the sugino 75 crank (hense the name)

    I think I agree with what dobber said. Shimano makes very good BBs, even the cheaper ones are good, and the 7x series is among the best you can buy for the money. Maybe _the_ best value for money.

    In general, I am not a fan of expensive crankarms as I don't see the point, but purely from a marketplace point of view, $200 for the Sugino 75 and a Sugino 75 chainring (not some random 144BCD chainring) is a good deal even without the BB.




    If the items are new. Crankarms don't wear, but BBs and chainrings do.
