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)

Cheap cranksets, maybe 42t or greater

Just as it sounds, i am looking for a cheap crankset, or even just a drive side crank that is a 170mm. I don't care what the condition, age, anything. Just that it is greater than 42t and can fit a typical Shimano sealed cartridge BB(square taper, i think). Thanks everyone!

crank(s) and a ring. If its a 170mm driveside crank, then i only need one. Anything else, i need two. Im running a 32? tooth ring, and its too small, i over pedal at too slow a speed for my liking.

I have a shimano 600 crankset available. 43t. 170mm. I also have a 52t ring to go with the set. Right now it has BMX bolts on it to allow just one of the rings.

Okay, sent the money out. Should be there in 3-4 postal days. Look forward to seeing the new cranks and the new speed they will bring me. Thank you, Alec

Just to make sure of a few things: It will fit a standard Shimano BB with the square taper, right? Are you sending both chainrings? And, to remove the old cranks, if i don't care about damage, no special tools are needed?

Yes it will fit a square tapered b.b, yes both chainrings are included. If you do not care about damage then a hammer and a block of wood will eventually get it off.
