    Nice Italian Cranksets

    Hey all I'm building up a Sannino track bike and trying to stay all Italian. Any recommendations for a moderately priced Italian crankset? In an ideal world I'd get a vintage Campy crankset but they're selling for a little over my price range. I'd prefer to have something older (the frame's from the 80's), but I'm open to any new parts you guys think would work.

    Thanks

    Miche makes decent quality, new components. They are all made in Italy as far as I am aware. I've been rocking some Miche high flange hubs and they are excellent, besides me trashing the bearings on the rear wheel.

    If you want vintage, search for Gipiemme, OMAS or Ofmega track cranks. Should be a bit cheaper then campy.

    Campy Victory or Triomphe cranks, from the 80's, rather cheap, if you can find them. They usually come doubled up as road cranks, but the one I'm using has a single chainring. Only burn is that they are 116BCD, and can only use the 42t, 52t,and 53t chainrings that were made for the cranks.

    why dont you just get a campy record road crank and remove one of the rings? Pair it with a BB that allows some side to side adjustment for chainline and noone need ever know its not track...

    quality vintage is probably for $150 is not going to happen unless you're lucky or have a hook-up.

    new: I'd go with miche primato cranks - they can be had for about 150, give or take 20-30.

    Sugino Super Mighty's look like vintage Campy's but of course are Japanese. They go for under a $100 on ebay though and are really nice.

    Yeah, what were they thinking?

    Other rings were available for them, but are harder to find:
