Do I need to change my Crank & BB ?
Last year was my first on the track at Kissena 400m outdoors.
Purchased a Felt TK3 which did the job and I wanted to change things up a bit this season.
I road stock parts all season as I listened and learned a few things and in my case how to ride a fixed gear, ride track and learn race tactics.
The Felt comes stock with 3/32 chain and 48 x 15, so over the season I acquired some 1/8 chainrings, cogs, chain and tools to make my life easier
and prevent any chain issues as I am 215, but look closer to 190.
The crank is an aluminum Felt something or other and is 170mm with their Felt BB.
So my question is do I need or should I swap the 170 to a 165-167? I would not know if I needed any change but I need to work on my explosiveness out of the gate.
On the road I would not call myself a gear masher but I climb very well for a big guy.
On that point if I do change what would be an affordable good quality crank? I have seen Dura-Ace and Sugino but am unsure if I need them at this point.
My guess is that I will have 10-16 days of racing simply because we race 1 day a week.
Additionally is there a better(?) BB to purchase? I am not aware of anything around other than the standard Shimano SQ BB's .
