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)

Sugino Messenger Crankset.

I was wondering if anyone can help me and tell me what the difference between these crank sets are, and if its a good deal. I will be using them on my fixed gear bicycle. Thanks

They look the same to me...
Except the obvious: one has gold lettering and the other has grey.
(And one is shown with dust caps, the other is not)

Well, according to the description, one of them is pearl white and the other is complete white. I'd got with the cheaper one.

He's actually running a 42t right now, so I'm guessing he'll be happy with 44t. Now someone find me a black set for that price! Haha.
