    SS crankset for press-fit BB86

    The crankset I wanted may not work for the frame I'm building up.

    Can anyone suggest a good (light, strong, bad ass, etc) single speed crankset for a BB86, press fit only. I'm open to suggestions. My original plan was to use an e13 SS crank, but it looks like this might not work.

    BB86 is the road bike width, it uses the same bearings With a BB86 only road cranks with their shorter spindles will work.

    BB92 uses the same press-fit system but the bottom bracket shell is wider to accommodate the longer MTB crankset spindles.
