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)

Looking for info on Crankset/arm

http://www.amazon.com/Takara-Kabuto-...cmu_pg__header

This is the bike i have. I have looked everyhwere online to try and figure out what i need to be able to replace the crank set on this bike. What spec i need to look for and such

I know the original crank set is 44T and 170mm crank arms. I would prefer to keep it the same.

This bike is awesome and has served me well. It just so happens the Right crank arm got bent and needs replacing so i thought i would replace the whole crank set.

If anyone could point me in the right direction that would be great.

Buy a crankset that comes with a 68mm English threaded BB.

Not unless your bottom bracket is the same required by this crankset. That crankset you linked doesnt have specs listed, which is why I'd steer clear.

Reading the customers reviews it says it fits 68mm BB. Any other suggestions? Or would that mean this would work?

You need to know the spec'ed length of spindle and whether it is ISO or JIS.

any suggestions for a replacment? Can i just replace both arms so it would be symetrical rather than the Chain disc and BB?

Any crankset you buy will include both arms.
