Track Crankset for S-Works Langster


I'm fitting out a Specialized S-Works Langster for my daughter to race on the track. Anyone have any suggestions for a bb and crank setup that will have a pretty low q-factor? Generally not a big deal for me, but she is really small and anything to keep her feet closer is important.

That is rad. Go your daughter assuming she is not racing with the daughter of my favorite local grocery store checkout person who also has a track riding daughter. I love my Sugino 75 DD cranks personally, I am unsure of q-factor but they are good reliable cranks and use a Shimano standard 24mm BB spindle meaning a ton of external bbs will work and if she is racing and needs parts most any shop will have a Shimano compatible external B.B. in English thread.

Here is my Langster Rio edition which I use on the road hence brakes and suspension post:
It may help slightly probably not but you can see the crank.

In the the Racer's Forum there is a Juniors Racing and a Track Cycling sub-forum

You are a good dad...

My Dura Ace 7710 cranks have a noticeably narrower stance width then my Sugino 75s but it looks like the Direct Drives are even narrower.
