wow that title sounds super…awesome
I used to ride at hellyer couple times a month and once a week during the summer. and I want to start going again regurally once or twice a week or on vacation a couple times after couple of months start competing.
I need to use my bike to commute to school, around 30mile round way trip.
and going to rides with my friends…
I can spend around 300-400. I was wondering;
I need help/reviews on the crankset and bb to buy
What are crankset/bb that are good/ok for track, that would still be suitable when i start competing(hopefully), but at the same time durable enough for daily rides in the street.
I would be up to overhaul bottom brackets, as i used to do it to my road bike and I really love to fix my bike myself and diy and all.
…getting to know the true soul of my bike…
so i dont mind the extra work, to get to know how to do these things.plus I hate going to shops to get things fixxed.I have the tools so id rather…do it myself.
That said, I am putting the omniums as my number one for now because I’ve heard alot about them and yea. What about the Miche pista adv. and the gran compe?I have these available locally so wondering how these hold up. I just want something that’ll last me…forever…
For what it’s worth I rode a 75 BB and crankset on the road and track for while and had no problems at all. Even with a couple rain days. $20 says you could get freakin’ Pake cranks and they’d be fine. Get whatever.
[quote=“kyle!”]Excuse me, what is a Grand Compe crankset?

Miche makes a good crank that isn’t too expensive. On the Primato, the spider is threaded so you don’t need to use a backer for the CR bolts. This makes swapping rings faster, but it does lead to the possibility of stripping the spider. I bought a crank that had a stripped hole, ran a tap through it and used a longer bolt. Worked fine. I don’t know if the advanced still has this feature.
Unfortunately, unless they changed it for the newer Advanced crank, the BB is a pain in the ass. It is adjustable on both sides so it takes a bit longer to get it properly installed. Then, it tends to loosen over time and creak so you have to pull the cranks and tighten it every few weeks. Functionally, it works great. If you could get a ISO taper in a symmetrical 107 mm length from someone else, I’d do it.
