Whats the deal with Campangnolo "BMX cranks"???Trevo
Nov 4, 2003 2:10 PM
I see them all over e-bay and Iam curious: Did camp make them with the intention of BMX racing? OR did the oldschool bmx race crowd want something really light?

Why is there such and abundance of these cranks on e-bay?
Thanks for the info

and I don'y know that many are actually sold. As to what or why, I haven't a clue.

I am not sure where they came from, or why they exist. They are all "new in box, old stock" Campy no longer makes them. I have seen one of the biggest crank heads I know use them with out any issues. SH is 6'8" tall and rides like a bat out of hell. He made the fixed gear century seem like a stroll threw the park, and puts lots of leverage on them. I am sure the only reason they exist is to match the other Gold(They come in Gold and Blue) parts on his Waterford.

The cranks also came in red, as did matching hubs and pedals. Basically they are Grand Sport parts anodised in "BMX" colours (hubs had solid axles and pedal cages had teeth). We used to sell them back in the day...
