    hi, im looking for any suggestions for a good crankset for a fixie that im building, and ideally it would be something cheap that would still work well.

    ...if you're not, sign up for their eMail list and wait for a discount code.

    OUTMAR is usually worth .10 off, it was last month anyway.

    If you're looking at All-Citys you may as well get a set of unbranded Andels and nix the gigantic logo on the crank arms.

    I've got this and it's been pretty rad so far. And it's shiny.

    Origin 8 makes complete garbage. My friend received one of them stem with an ovalized clamp. I would not trust a company that makes products with a 5mm error tolerance.

    Until the OP chimes back in with how much money he/she actually wants to spend, we can all keep rattling off cranksets until our fingers bleed and get absolutely nowhere.
