I use a Deore crank with a SS-specific ring and shorter chainring bolts, not ss-specific cranks. My more ‘niche’ bike has Sugino XD cranks on a square taper BB, but they’re still triple cranks repurposed as SS.
Can’t see the appeal of specific cranks for any reason other than as bike jewellery.Posted 4 years agossboggySubscriber
What crank and bb are you running at the moment? Your post reads like the bb is the problem but you want new cranks! As already mentioned any triple chainset will run ss with an unramped chain ring. Fwiw I run the same setup as Teetosugars above with Uno ring on one bike and the same with a stainless On one ring on the other.Posted 4 years agoamplebrewSubscriber
I ran a Race Face Ride singlespeed chainset on a Kona Unit for lots of miles without any issue.
I wouldn’t necessarily recommend the Race Face bottom bracket, but I think the actual chainsets are really good.
I’m running a White Industries ENO chainset now which is amazing, albeit dearer.Posted 4 years ago
You probably put more strain through cranks riding fixed and I have used any old crankset for years this way with no trouble at all
Yeah, my Sugino XD cranks have been perfectly happy on my fixied bike, on a Shimano square taper BB for years now. I don’t tend to break bike parts though; that bike also has touring rims 🙂Posted 4 years agomattbeeSubscriber
I was disgusted earlier this year when a 10year old set of Middleburn cranks finally died after I neglected to check the nds bolt after fitting.Posted 4 years ago
I mean, only 10 years? User error resulting in failure? They even had the temerity to have spares available!
Had another set so they are on the ss now, using the outer ring of a Duo as I can’t be bothered to get the locking off to fit my UNO ring…
