I need some help choosing cranks.
I'm looking for a good 144bcd crankset for around $200. I'm mostly looking at either the Miche Advanced or the Soma Hellyer. Is the Miche worth the extra money (Ive found it for $200 and the Hellyer for $130). Are the Soma's just rebranded Andels? They look slightly different to me, but I'm not sure. I would be interested in Omniums, but how are they in the rain? I'm moving to Eugene, Oregon next fall and my one bike will be my main transportation. I could be completely wrong, but I just feel like the external BB won't hold up to rain as well as a sealed BB. I've also seen these (http://www.iminusd.bigcartel.com/product/id144
) which really look like rebranded Andels for significantly more, but please correct me if I'm wrong.
