    Sugino XD600 152mm crank on sale

    Tree Fort bikes has the Sugino XD600 152mm crank set on sale for $91.

    Sugino XD600 152mm 24/36/50 in Tree Fort Bikes Cranks (cat119)

    This is the lowest price I have seen for this excellent crank. It's a potentially good crank for putting a 152mm 24/36 dual setup on your kids bikes. Finding a bash guard is a challenge though.

    I'm tempted but for now I think I will be sticking with a single chainring up front on my kids bikes for now, but I though I would throw this out there for others looking for a quality 152mm crankset.

    I still think this is a better value, but that's just me. Starting at $99 and you can customize to your hearts desire. Length, rings, bashguard etc...

    IDK. I'd never pay $100 for that Truvativ. Its not that great a crank to start with.
    The Sugino is a very nice crank, it's not modded, and it has nicer chainrings.
    BBG has 110 guards that will work for ~$12

    It's not for us, it's for kids bikes. 152mm cranks is good for a 5 ft child, what about all the rest? I'll take the Isoflow at the right length over the Sugino being too long.

    I used Lasco 152mm cranks. They are a bit long for my son. I don't really intend to change them though, I could use the 145mm Truvativ I have from his 20 inch. It didn't look horrible though, at 152mm. He might chop a bit, when mashing, but haven't really looked at that. His seated spin looks OK, just a tad large.

    In any event, I like the Lasco over the Sugino primarily because it's 104BCD instead of 110, allowing use of a smaller granny.

    I had forgotten about those Lasco cranks. I agree at $75 those are a better option.
