Zipps fitted to a Track bike - post by karl_a_hall. Including details about a machined adapter plate to get the chain line right. Sounds like a lot of hard work...

You should first ask: Why does no one use this type of crankset on the track?

alternately, you could go for one of the old fsa vigorelli track cranks:

I think that Rotor is also a solid option and comes with 144BCD:

Or good options are the 3 cranks used by 90% of the world's top racers: Dura-ace, Sugino 75, and SRM.

Nice. Is that the one that can sample at a rate of 10 per second?

Not sure carleton. Can't find any real specific information online about this particular crank... All I know it is a Science model with single reed switch. I wasn't specifically looking for a Science model, just spent ages looking online and this one showed up on ebay for a good price. Would have been great if it was a newer dual reed switch version, but as an enduro I've heard this isn't as critical.
