    just got omiums for 140 on ebay.

    150 is a lot of money for cranks i think. you could be perfectly happy with something below 100

    sugino, truvativ (same company as sram), FSA, shimano, campagnolo...

    brands are good, their prices, not necessarily...

    If you buy good parts then when you decide to buy a new frame, and you will, you just Change over the parts and you're done.....
    Never have to upgrade with good parts.

    If you want to spend 50 bucks more i know of someone here in Dallas (bike mech) selling a sugnio 75 with a sugino zen racing 48T.....just example.

    If you look around you will find GREAT parts for very little.

    Good cranksets.

    Sugino messenger, 75
    Campy record (super expensive but pretty)
    Origin 8 (very good bang for your buck)

    Dura Ace; if you are willing to sever your limbs for it.

    I actually like Sugino Grand Mighty a lot, I'd get one if I were to build a bike purely for the track.

    omnium would be basically a bombproof crankset that will last you forever, so get those if you can get a good deal on em!

    I've heard good things about Wipperman 108 chain, as well as Miche Primato track chain. Chain is a very personal thing, you could try the Wipperman 108 and see how it goes.

    Yes. Exactly what happy pills said. Best bang for your buck. Not very good resale value though.

    Sugino RD is all you need for street riding.
