    Help a classic-vintage fan ID a SS crank/ring?

    I post mostly in the C-V forums, but just bought my first bike that had been converted to front single speed. I am planning to restore it back to the original triple that was on it, so obviously will remove the existing crank and ring. With zero SS experience, been trying to ID the set to advertise it, but the silver factory marking/label have been worn off, leaving only what's seen in the pic. It's the only potential identification mark I could find on it aside from what seemed to be serial number on the back of the crank arm. Been skimming pics of rings and cranks for a while, and can't seem to do an eyeball match.

    Any ideas? Thanks for any help you might be able to provide.

    replying to my own post-- figures, as soon as I ask the question, think I got it. SRAM S100 1.1 Courier?

    Here:

    Second question then: is there a decent resale or trade market for a SS set like this similar to the C-V market?

    I wouldn't expect to strike it rich off these cranks.

    It isn't like they are worthless though. Fixed-gear stuff in general has a hipster tax, so used gear often retains more of its value than what otherwise might be expected, especially at the high-end. The cranks you have there might be bought by someone looking to build up a conversion or something extra cheep, but I wouldn't expect them to go for much more than $20. It looks to me like someone polished the chainring because the s100 comes with a matt chainring. The good news is that unlike with vintage stuff, this should have as much of a negative effect on the value.

    thanks for feedback. Yeah, wasn't thinking I'd strike it rich, just seeing if they were desirable/useful to the market beyond donating them to the local bike co-op. Wasn't sure if, like in the vintage world, there's absolutely no value to old department store type bike parts (sears, etc...) even if usable.

    You can get a few bucks for that if you put it on eBay. That is an ok crankset not as nice as the S300 courier but still ok.

    Truvativ branded something or others. Probably similar to the 1.1's you thought.

    I wouldn't get my hopes up.
