    More or less, yeah, the
    fluted crank arms and sheriff star
    are cool but the ring looks like
    cheapo stamped metal and the
    weird attachment to the crank arm
    says "early failure." One of those
    things that just doesn't quite look
    rugged enough to ride down to the
    corner store for chocolate milk.

    try this

    seems they want about $100 for these--you might give them a call.

    I think the ones I posted are the real deal. They are NOS & probably from the seventies. SR made some quality stuff.

    Maybe but the lack of a spider with five separate points of attachment
    to the chainring looks kinda sketchy to me. Maybe those cranks would propel
    a kid down the street. I suspect if you had to torque on them to skid, skip or
    blow your nose they would snap right quick. Just sayin.

    edit: I'm not saying there aren't other good designs out there but
    the thin chainring looks sketch.

    What do you mean by "the real deal." The design of the chainring is nothing special and calling it "sheriff star" is quite a stretch. They are **** and shouldn't be used unless you're broke and they're free.

    while i've never recommended anyone get the ****ty pauls mentioned above you're the prefect candidate and they are at least better than the ones you posted.

    I'm just curious--what's wrong with the Paul cranks other than an unreasonable price for a crank that
    requires a chain ring that is not widely available? I really like the design but I can't justify something that isn't standard 144 bcd or 130 bcd
    and can be purchased widely.

    cnced, square taper, splined interface, inefficient arm shape... Like most everything paul makes these days there are absolute crap by pretty much any measure.

    Yes, as to the quality/history of SR cranks. The fact that they are stamped S Star made me think sheriff star. I was hoping maybe someone might say these were the shiznit so I could hit the BIN, but I think my cranks are fixed.

    They're not S Star, they're actually Silstar. My friend has those same ones.

    And they're not very top-notch quality by any means.
