    What's that one crankset called?

    Ok so I was on fgg (fixed gear gallery) about a month ago and I saw this crankset that was suuuuuuuuper cool. It actually a complete drivetrain set... I don't know how to explain it. The chain was like flat on the top and it looked super smooth and it was black. I completely forget all the other stuff (I know that doesn't help much, sorry) but I do remember the guys calling something like the full track crank or something, I have no idea... if you know what I'm talking about then please tell me, and post a picture of what you think it is. Thanks!

    I'm sorry, I just don't remember the name of the crankset...

    Something like this perhaps? I think you could wear white while riding it but there would be a little hysteresis loss from the rubber belt.

    Excellent for single speed, you can start all sorts of fights by asking what they're like for fixed gear.
    You do need to be able to break the rear triangle to install a new belt because they're continuous, and there are some excellent ways of achieving this. There's even one bike/system at least where the rear cog goes outside the rear track end so you don't need to break the frame.
    I had a good bike ... so I FIXED it

    Thanks, that answers my question!
