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)

What Crankset is this?



Sorry to make a whole thread on this , but I didn't know where else to turn.

It looks like Sugino 75 arms but the Rings look lower Quality, can't quite tell.

thanks!

That would be the Sugino XD (110bcd). They sell for around 70 bucks new. Personally, I'd buy something else.

That ain't a sugino 75, and that chainrings are pieces of poo. Stay away from ******** sugino RD's that everyone seems to love so much.

The XD's are just the RD's in 110 BCD. Which gives you access to 1/8 BMX chainrings.
They are a solid crankset for what they are IMO.

The chainring is gonna be craptacular though.

Those aren't RDs and are great cranks for $60-70.

If people don't like this sugino, what cranks do they recommend for the same price ranger or better?
Thanks.

Sugino XDs and RDs are fine cranks for the money, and arguably all that most people need. Access to 110bcd bmx rings is a big plus of XDs, it's getting easier to find 1/8" 130bcd rings but it still can be a pain in the ass.
