    Repro Cook Bros SS cranks: "Livery"

    Fresh to you from the Action Sports Retailers convention, singlespeed cranks in 160, 165, 170, 175mm (no 180, wtf?!) fitted for square taper and looking a lot like Cook Bros. Even the back side of the crank is machined out.

    The makers are roadie/fixie nuts and so the gearing they've got now is set pretty much for just that. I'll tack in a few photos of the cranks on the wall, too. Want some, need some 180's for your antiquated, heavy, unreliable square-taper bottom bracket (don't be a sucker, that's just in fun)? They're at ldgruppe.com (and a lot more photos).

    Here are two, showing the chainring attachment. The designer says they might change this to a six-bolt format, which they're also using for the cogs on their fixie hub.

    Looks flexy. Those bb's are fun. But I'm a sucker for pretty colors
    read KNOBBY MEATS or be sadly ignorant of the mediocrity that is allowed to exist in the interwebs

    Will they do those hubs with a six bolt ISO flange on both sides?

    They probably would, if they perceived an interest. That six-bolt pattern you see is for their cog, which I bet you figured out. The hub shell is 7075al.

    be nice, maybe some of the vintage cranks will come down in price considering you can now buy NEW ones again...

    You've still got double barrels? Me, too... 1.5 pair of 195mm.

    I had two pair of 195mm Caramba Double Barrels. Broke the drive side on one set. The other set is still going strong.

    Also have 3 sets of HSC 195mm cranks. They're relatively bulletproof, although the spiders can be bent fairly easily.
