    Single Speed Crankset Recommendations

    Trying to outfit this 2010 Gary Fisher Superfly SS with some nice/light cranks. Wanted SRAM XO but they make a 2x10

    I have searched for some time and found a few (eThirteen, FifteenK, Truvativ 1.1G SS Carbon, etc. but not sure they would direct mount right in this frame.

    - Looking for 170mm crank length with 32 front light set (under 800g)

    - Doesn't seem to be a big market for us Single Speeders.

    - Any good recommendations?


    Thanks!

    Personally I use XT cranks with just a single ring. If I had the coin that some are willing to spend I would go wtih the tried and true XTR set with a ISAR ti ring.

    You probably know but...you can run any crank SS. I'm just one for keeping my options open. A triple crank run SS will have a few more grams due to the spider, but it'll retain better resale value and compatibility with other/future bikes.

    What do you guys think of the White Industries ENO Crankset?

    I am thinking about the XTR but they may need some machining if converted to Single Ring. M960's?

    Stumble - I am trying for a light SS that flies like a rocket. True, 3 rings and 2 rings hold some resale value.

    A lot of people run and enjoy the WI crankset.

    Another option is the Middleburn RS-7.

    FTW. I've converted 2 sets of M960s, it's time consuming if you want a mirror finish but well worth it, light and strong and look the biz.

    WI Eno cranks on my new Jabber

    I just pulled the trigger on this set up this morning. $209 shipped with a 32t front. Check ebay - Salt City Cycles has deals on these cranks. Now I need to see if I want to go with their Ti bb or a Phil Wood bb.

    Get this for less than a $100 on ebay or craigslist.



    Then cut the tabs file and sand and you'll have a light and stiff single speed crankset like this.
