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.

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.

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.
Edit: NM previous post. Too complicated.
