    Not Bad

    They're not bad...but not great, as you would imagine. If you're like me, and your ss rig doesn't have to be all bling bling, you'll pick em up and use em till they die.
    I had a pair in my hand before I built a ss, and sold them on ebay for $24 or something. They looked well built and solid, but I never rode 'em.
    If I had known I was going to get in ss'ing, I would've kept em.
    If you buy em, I'm sure you'll get a lot of good use out of em.

    This is off topic, but I just had to say that your Avatar is pretty sweet! I'm an EE and can appreciate those cool old analog scopes!

    Back on topic, I agree with paulbug, ss'ing is all about getting back to the basics, f*ck the expensive components. Part of the beauty of ss'ing for me was building up my ss from left over parts in the garage. A $18 ss specific crankset is like gold. Buy before I do.
    Cheers

    I have those exact crankset on my ss which I am in the progress of building. Though mounted, I haven't had a chance to ride them yet as my ss is still a work in progress.

    They are solid, simple, but a bit on the heavy side.

    I paid $25 new at a bike swapmeet in Tucson.

    I have them on my SS. They are kinda heavy, very stiff. I cant feel them flex. Im pretty happy with them, that 38 tooth ring kinda screwed me up, didnt feel like buying a ring and a freewheel(wheel set cost more then hoping for but ended up much nicer then i had hoped).

    Like someone said they are simple and they will get the job done.

    Yup, a crankset with outboard bearings seems like a great idea. SSing means more load on your cranks and BB. The outboard bearings are bigger than standard BB bearings which should hold up better under the exterme forces of ss'ing.

    I have a set of RaceFace Dues cranks that I'm thinking of converting over to a ssingle chainring.
