Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Crank/BB help.

So my crank arms are a bit loose, i've tried almost everything except loctite, that everyone suggests i do so.
I'm looking for suggestions on a crankset and a BB, for last resorts, as im afraid i rode the bike even with the loose arms.

If you rode on them loose then the crank arms (assuming they are aluminum) are mishapen and will no longer stay tight.

New crank. We have no idea what you own so its hard to recommend you something, but look into something cheap like origin8. Decent crank for the money.
