    Crank Recommendations

    Looking for crank recommendations for a budget conscious person...

    I was looking at the Sram S100 or an Origin 8, but not sure what would be a good deal.

    Anybody have any recommendations?

    I would like 170mm crank arms.

    I don't know about the Origin8 cranks, but the SRAM S100 is a road crank with a 130mm BCD. Not a good choice. You didn't specify your budget, but the cheapest option I can think of is a Shimano (Alivio M 410 is one model) square tapered mountain bike crankset. Just remove the big and small rings, add a set of shorter bolts and a bottom bracket, and you have a crankset for about $60 total including the bottom bracket.
