    crankset and bottom bracket

    ok guys, I have been buying my parts, painting my frame. I was going to go with an origin 8 crank set but then when i started doing research on it i dont hear too many things, the only few things that i did read were not the greatest.

    I have a range of 50-150 ( +/ - 10). key things, i am looking for a Black crankset

    You guys have any suggestion..and yes, i used the search button, but to no avail

    An Omnium crankset and bottom bracket on eBay are 200. Hard to go wrong.

    you can get the sram s300 courier crankset for a ben (includes bb, cranks and ring).
    black, sealed, smoove and kinda sharp. light too.
    most importantly, right in your budget.

    Here's what I did: Pake black crank (60 shipped) and Shimano UN54 BB (30 shipped)

    another good option is to get the Andel crank from Ben's for 100 bucks plus shipping. I don't know how either of these actually are, though. I am still waiting for my Pake crank to arrive in the mail. I have heard great things about them, though. I did a lot of research on this and that was what I was recommended

    wtf?

    EDIT: Yes, please read my previous posts where I asked the EXACT SAME QUESTION like a week ago. This way, you can get some of the information that I got about these two cranksets I am mentioning. Sp00ki, don't you have anything better to do than start petty fights on the net?

    and if anybody reads your posts they'd see your'e a d0uchebag and ignore you, rather than take your advice either.

    This looks like the best option in the budget crankset range. The chainring looks a little cheap, but nothing worse than what you'll find on other budget cranks.

    I highly recommend that crank/bb setup. It'll last you forever. It's stiff and brings you a different feel to the bike since the bb have external bearings cups. Definetly worth spending the extra 50$ over your 150$ budget.

    I have the SRAM S300. Only been using it for a couple weeks, so I can't speak to it's durability, but it seems to be high quality. I think it looks great. Picked it up for about $120 + shipping at universalcycles.com

    the s300 has external bb (gxp, same as the omnium set), doesn't exceed his budget and comes in the color he wants.
    why would you suggest spending 50$ more than what he's allotted when he has absolutely no need to?

    he asked for:
    -black
    -between $50 and $150

    the omnium set not only does neither of those things, but is the kind of component that gets you bike stolen (and all for double the cost!)

    and no offense, but saying "it'll last you forever" about a component that was only invented two years ago is sorta bad form...

    $120 closeout carbon campy centaur.

    comes with the same 'ultradrive' anti-friction rings as the current chorus/record cranks (no longer true for centaur), which you can ebay for ~$75, which will fund an 1/8" miche 135mm ring and then some. net cost, ~$100.

    with a 111mm campy BB (required) the chainline is close to perfect, even with the ring on the outside. with a 1mm spacer behind the cog, it *is* perfect. possible drawback for the OP...not totally black.

    the Soma Hellyer cranksets are really nice, and I think in your price-range. Probably the closest thing to Dura-Ace/Sugino 75 for your price range. You could go with the Sug Messengers too.

    Does that sram crankset with bb give the appropriate chainline for a standard formula fixed gear hub?

    What threads are the bottom bracket in?

    I didn't break out the calipers to measure but.....I have a formula fixed/fixed hub in the back, and by sight, the chainline is "perfect". The BB has English threading.
