Stylo GXP a good crank?

Hi guys,

I have a Niner SIR9 2009 single speed that I'm converting over to a BMX cruiser and it currently has a Stylo GXP crank. I have an SRAM Omnium crank on on another bike and was thinking of swapping them. Is it worth it in your opinion?

It's really a wash. If you can do the work yourself, switch 'em out and see what you think. You may lose 20 minutes of your life in the process.

Omniums are track cranks so no real small chainrings. The smallest I have seen is vintage campy at 41t and the new stuff of quality is usually 44t sometimes I have seen a 42t. If you don't plan on going smaller it is fine but otherwise I would keep the stylo. Either way I am not a fan of SRAM cranks.
