    Sugino cranks

    Does anyone know anything about Sugino cranksets? How do they compare (qualitywise) to Shimano ones? I know they're a good deal more expensive, but if it's worth it, I love the look of them.

    are you referring to a specific crank? sugino makes high and low end cranksets. as far as comparing with shimano, they both make a quality product.

    not the best reason to drop 250 on a crank...

    The range in quality is huge--high end sugino's (75s) are great, low end (gts) are crappy.

    High end cranks aren't really worth it if your going to be riding around in sneakers-- a lot of the driving powers is lost in the sole of the shoe. When I got my 75s (with 75 bottom bracket) I also got SPDs-- the difference was huge.
    I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.

    It was once a Datsun. Then it was a Nissan by Datsun. Now just Nissan.
    The original 240z is now kind of collectable like a 1980 DeRosa with full Campy Record.

    just because they arent special doesnt mean that they cant look good. nothing wrong with finding beauty in a simple thing such as a cheap reliable crank

    i was genuinely shocked at the way the 75 crankset spins though.
    probably the smoothest spin i've ever seen... not sure if it's felt real world, but they spun longer than my phils when chain/pedals were off.
    (both had seen good mileage and were broken in nicely)
