Cannondale Fixie Conversion
I am converting a Cannondale Cad 3 from a crit bike to a fixed gear because the shifters are broken and I figure why bother replacing them when I need a fixie to train on anyway.
My problem is that it has a perfectly fine Shimanon JIS tapered bottom bracket, and I am having problems finding a 165 mm crankset that has a JIS taper. All of the Shimano stuff now seems to come with either octalink or their new system. I really don't want to change the BB if I can help it. This conversion is supposed to be less than buying a whole new bike!
Anyway, I have searched the WWW and found a Stronglight Impact 165mm crankset that is supposedly JIS tapered. I am trying to avoid using an ISO taper, just because I don't like mixing such things.
Has anyone used the Stronglight Impact crackset with a Shimano JIS BB? Any words of wisdom?
