Inexpensive crank setups?Alex-in-Evanston

This isn't exactly a single speed question, but it is a single chainring setup question.

I'm putting together my old Kestrel frame as a 1x9. It's going to have a campy 9spd rear, and I'm looking for advice on a good, inexpensive crank setup to go with it. I'd love to get something like a pair of cheap shimano cranks. What would some of you folks do in this situation?



p.s. - I've already got a ton of 110bcd rings for my ss cross bike, so if I could get 5 arm 110's for this bike too I'd be stoked.

Alex, Dimension 110bcd crankarms:

Probably can't beat the price at $35. Other 110bcd cranks that I'm aware of are RaceFace and T.A. IIRC, Ritchey offered 110 cranks, but I only found 130 cranks on the website today.

Regarding Shimano (130bcd) cranks, I've seen most of the catalog/website vendors have 105 and Ultegra cranks for $90-$100 bucks.
