    Well if they have to be 165mm I'm gonna go with DA. Otherwise I would have picked 75s.

    I have my reasons.

    LEAVE ME ALONE!

    165 is too short for me anywhere. so, Truvativ Holzfeller would be my vote (i run a 170 Hussefelt on my SS).

    None of those cranks listed are exactly "high end" (the Omniums are newer technology but still not too high end). Maybe if you're riding around on a Bulletproof they might seem high end, but unless you're talking about carbon honeycomb disc chainrings and external bearing systems you're still riding on 70's technology.

    What is the weight for the cranks listed? (I don't feel like Googling all of them)

    I ride the omniums and really like them. Do any of the others listed have external bearings? As far as I know as of this posting the omniums are the cheapest, lightest (factoring in the bb), and best tech (external bearings). If that is the case I see this as a no brainier. I could be way off base with those three assumptions though.

    Wernt people running the omniums at the olympics this year?

    I didn't say they were low end. Don't do that to me.

    Is that before or after you realized external is being deprecated by BB30?

    Omniums are not a high end crank. In fact, track racers consider them low end.

    Dura ace's are stiffer than Omniums.

    What a dumb statement. Did you go and interview every track racer in the world? My buddy races Men's A match sprints and favors Omniums over DA 7710's, so there ya go. To each his own.

    The fact of the matter is cranks don't necessarily need to be carbon or have other new-fangled technology like "honeycomb disc chainrings" to make them high end. Dura Ace road cranks are still aluminum, for instance. Anyways, in the context of track racing, the cranks the OP selected are indeed the high end range and the most common sets found on pro bikes.
