    Will BMX cranks work on Singled-speed MTB?

    I had thinking about cranks, I really like BMX cranks. So, I can't find any information about that. Does somebody know if BMX cranks fit on the converted singled-speed MTB?

    i like the idea, but i bought a solid single speed DH crank set, BB, and Sprocket with guards for 20$ off eBay for my SSMTB build... the cranks remind me of the profile cranks, i don't remember who made them though

    For mountain bike use:

    Azonic also used to make a set of tubular steel cranks for mtb use. They show up on ebay from time to time.

    ^ I didn't ask why you want to do this. I asked what you will be doing with this bike.

    dudes & dolls,

    Nobody answer my questions. So I had decided to go bike shop, and asked bike mechanic about any bmx crankset can runs for mtb. he had an answer yes, if mtb has euro bb! I guess its re-solution already.

    Thank you for replied my posts. anyway...

    Yay for a 2.5 hour attention span.
    I'm not one for fawning over bicycles, but I do believe that our bikes communicate with us, and what this bike is saying is, "You're an idiot." BikeSnobNYC

    ^ +1.

    And to the OP:
    The reason that your question was not answered RIGHT AWAY was that nobody who read it knew the answer. Being an impatient whiner tends to turn away people who might otherwise want to help you. If you had wanted to find out the answer right away, you could have used the search function. I did, and now I know the answer. Amazing how that works.

    Hopefully now that your LBS provided you with a service, you'll buy the parts you need from them.

    Why is everyone talking like this? Is it William Shatner day?
    I can either bike fast, or chew bubble gum, and I'm all out of bubble gum.
