Sakae SXC crankset

Anyone ever come across one of these? I can't find much information on it. Looks like it could be nice with a BB overhaul and some elbow grease.

I'd like to ideally swap the BB for a cartridge, but can't track down any info on spindle length.

That does look a nice one. Is it 48-38-28 or road set up? If Velobase does not have it you might have to pull the crank and measure it.

Is it on a bike you're thinking of buying? I actually kind of enjoy the challenge of mating a swap-meet crankset with the cartridge BBs in my bin to figure out what length is best for my needs, through trial and error.

Just shooting from the hip, I'd expect it to be somewhere north of 118mm in asymmetric BBs and longer in symmetric ones.

The bike is in my garage as we speak, so I have no excuse for not just pulling and measuring it.

The 110 bcd makes it a nice candidate for new compact rings. I think the intended rider would be confused by a triple.

Aha! Using it as a compact would make the BB selection even easier, since you'd generally scooch the drive-side inward from where a triple set would live anyway.
