    ... and if we just ... Crank Question for SS/Fixed

    Ok, so I'm trying to price out a new SS/Fixed gear. This is going to serve as my one and only ride for awhile.

    The one thing I'm unsure about is the crankset. I will not use ISIS, bad experiences. So my choices are Race Face Turbine taper w/ BB, Shimano Saint single, or Profile Chromoly. I like the Profiles, but they are heavy - unsure about the other two...and all three are around $250-$270 w/ BB.

    My priorities are strength and stiffness. Weight is third. I just want a reliable crankset!

    Thank you!

    Its almost as expensive as the Saint. For that money, I would rather get the Saint crank.
