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)

a. Use the search, there is probably about 7 threads on these cranks.
b. a 103mm bb will give you a 45mm chain line.
c. They are great budget cranks for the price. (I have a set.)

Mine have been Pretty good, They have taken a few serious hits and are still straight, With the Sugino 103mm BB my chain line has been gravy.

I've had mine since 04 and they're still solid.As before mentioned chainline is 45mm(not 42 as it says om the site) but that has not been a problem.If you are looking for budget the bulletproofs are another good option and should give you a 45mm chainline on the outside as well(with the 103BB).
