Sugino 75 yes, one of the best in existence. I use the 75 DD2 on two of my bikes. Miche cranks are made of cheese.

In a word, yes; because in the right position my saddle is only taking some of the weight; some of the time. A lot goes through my pedals and I can support a fair amount with my hands / shoulders but...

Correct. And as I said, this is just a good starting point. If you pedal 'naturally' toe down the saddle will need to come up a bit. If you pedal heel down it will need to come down a bit.
