    I see what you're saying with the classy look though, that's why I'd do black Sugino 75's.

    I'd just ride it, and if you need to adjust the fit then get silver stem and seatpost

    Flipped the chain a little while ago and thanks for all your comments guys. I'm getting swayed more and more towards a black crankset but I got the DA cranks at such a steal price I don't want to let go.

    Sell em, make a profit, and buy an equally nice crankset in black if you want.

    First world problems mang, brush that dirt off your shoulders.

    Motobecan converted to fixed, a Schwinn Varsity and a late 1980 Trek 1200.

    What I commute on, I may change from fixed to a freewheel cause I like being lazy.

    My local powder coater does cranks for BMX riders often and cheap. But, if that's your shoe rub I'd probably not go that route.

    You could have them anodized pretty easily/inexpensively as well.

    That's a better option. I'm ignorant as to who does such things, though. Are there companies who do nothing but anodizing or what do you look for? I've thought about having my gnarly Nuovo Record cranks anodized black.

    You can build a home anodizing kit for around 100 dollars, it's pretty fun and sciency

    A lot of custom hot rod or motorcycle shops either do it or can point you in the right direction.

    So can you 'splain to me the back story on why the Fuji Track Pro is a Nishiki?

    edit: just read your pedalroom explanation. Any pics of the original nishiki?

    Also @ adrian_, maybe try just a black chain ring if you don't wanna make it all black.

    i'm sure somewhere i have ones of mine, but heres one that's identical minus a white vetta saddle http://www.flickr.com/photos/yospiff...4154/lightbox/

    the fuji track pro was basically because i knew how good it looked all one color, koshi's black one was the inspiration. and then after making it all black i figured well the only other thing to do is some crazy custom paint job. so i did that and built up the wheels and now... well... i keep forgetting how much i like it this way. i might plastidip the whole thing black.

    i attached the headtube badge with hot glue. same with the raleigh.
