Carbon fixed gear crankset.....Dave Hickey

I know this kinda goes against the concept of a simple cheap fixed gear bike, but if you want the ultimate crankset, FSA just came out the a carbon BMX crankset. It uses an ISIS bottom bracket so it will work with a standard road frameset.

but I wonder how much it weighs. Ring looks beefy. One thing I love about my fixie is how light it is. The FSA is a good lookin' crankset, though.

if you added a 36 tooth (or smaller) granny ring to the inner holes (74bcd) it would make a decidely different twist to an iBoB, rivendell, touring style superlightweight crankset.

definately different and im sure some would give it a try.

i do like the 110bcd size though - its a shame for most riders that it isnt the standard as it would alow for more options than the current 130 and 135 bcd but perhaps i just dont see the point of triples.

oops wrong forum ... sorry
