    Single speed crankset and BB suggestions?

    I'm rebuilding my schwinn high plains and looking for a new crankset and bottom bracket. I can't seem to find the right singlespeed crankset that will fit. I'm looking for a crankset that's: 32t, 180mm, 1/2" x 1/8". What's my best option for under $100? Hope everyone has a good Thanksgiving! Thanks!

    I have a Raceface Evolve SS on a parts bike that I picked up for less than $100.00 at Price Point if i remember right.

    Might be tough to find the 180mm, though .

    You can always find the older model Truvativ Stylos in 180mm...they're $100.00 or so. Both are GXP BB.

    While we're at this topic, I have some questions.

    I am thinking to use shimano outer BB cranks, just the cheapest one Deore.

    1. I am just wonder if the crank will less ovaled compare to square tapered one.
    2. Is it become more spinny compare to inner BB.
    3. Is this good for climbing? considering SS climbing is mostly stand and hammer with extra mashing sometimes.
    4. Is this stiffer and smoother?
