Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Pictures of new Eighthinch.com crank set and polished SR stem

Hey everyone I snapped a couple of quick pictures of the new Eighthinch.com crank set and my polished SR stem that will be going on my conversion. The crank set was extremely affordable ($50 I think from Ebay) and it looks OK. It does not look real high-end, but it looks good and fits the specs for my build and should work perfect for it. It's a 46t chain ring by the way.

I brought the SR stem home from college today in hopes of polishing it and boy was I shocked. I used Adams metal polish for it. I highly suggest it to anyone wanting to polishing any oxidized or dull-looking parts for their bike. It went from a dull-luster silver to a nearly chrome finish. Sorry about not taking any before pictures of the stem, I didn't even think about it. Hope this is helpful to someone!

The polish can be found at: http://www.adamspolishes.com/

They have an entire line of car detailing supplies that really do work and aren't highway robbery like some other high-end polishes out their. Oh and I am not a rep. or anything for them, I just like their products!

*Well it looks like my computer does not want me sharing my pictures with you at the moment so I will try to get them up soon*

Looks like it's from the same manufacturer as my Pake crankset. Wonder how the price compares...

Guys, sorry but like I said in the first couple posts, my computer at home is apparently not letting me post pictures and I am now at school and have no access to internet at my place here. But I will try to get my pictures up tomorrow after my exam. Sorry!

Why, because the chainring is on the outside of the spider? You can do the same with the Pake.

Funny thing is, they do sell 3/32" cogs. I really like that white crankset. Might have to pick one up in the future when I finally start the gf's build.

It looks like a road double. That doesn't detract anything from it, from a technical point of view, but I know a certain demographic that will be deeply hurt by that.

I understand this also. What we are mostly after is an incredible price- without compromising integrity or quality. I think that demographic may be buying more expensive cranks anyhow

Slightly weaker, lighter, and skinnier (edit:the chain). If a rider plans on doing serious track work, wouldn't they spend more than $50 on a crank in the first place?

I think its funny because the company's name is eighthinch or 1/8 so youre not out of the loop they just named the company after the fact that they specialize in 1/8 products I believe.
