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)

Something useful...

Maybe give us a price range as to how much you want to spend.

EighthInch, Pake, Origin8 ones are the best bang for the buck kind of crank.

SRAM GXP 300 Couriers, SRAM Omnium, Miche Advanced, Sugino 75, Sugino Grand Mighty, Dura Ace 7600...the list goes on and on and on and on...

Use the search button.
All will be grateful. If not
flaming will commence


if you want our suggestions, at least give us some parameters to aim within. Otherwise, if your just asking for track cranks, some of the best "modern" cranks are the Sram Omniums. Some of the best "classic" track cranks are Sugino 75s. These are also some of the most expensive options out there. If you have any preference on price range, intended use, look, or color, you're going to have to let us know.

miche advanced is popular, Ive never ridden them. I got a set of Raceface cadence cranks with FSA BB for free. Works great, really strong
