Retrospec Bicycles Fixed-Gear Crank Single-Speed Road Bicycle Forged Crankset
- Forged like never before, it’s denser and burlier but still lightweight.
- The alloy crank and steel chainwheel will allow you to ride more efficiently with a smooth cadence day in and day out and in turn reduce the need for constant maintenance.
- This crankset is the force behind your bicycle, whether you’re riding fixed or single-speed.
- Available in a variety of bright colors and sizes to make it easier for you to customize your ride.
- After reading other reviews, about oversprayed paint and pedals backing out, I decided to tru a pair for myself.
- Ok, step one: use a thread chaser on both the pedal threads and crank pulling threads.
- Step two: if your pedals are backing out and falling off the crank arm, you are probably riding “pure fixie” without brakes.
- I suggest using blue loctight on the pedal threads instead of grease.
- In doing these two things I have had no problems with my crankset.
- It’s awesome and color selection, along with price, make it stand out in a crowd!
- I tried a 3/32 chain and got major chain suck where the chain gets stuck in between the teeth and gets grabbed up the chainring before letting go.
- But note: I think that these cranks may first be tapped 1/2″x20tpi, then re-tapped at 9/16″x20tpi.
- I think this because atop every thread peak was a distinct crease that followed the thread perfectly.
- I found that the pedals threaded into the cranks somewhat sloppily.
- They have tightened with use, as they should, but I was nervous for a awhile that they would not.
- Usually stripped crank threads are due to improper installation, so that was the hunch I ran with.
- When I received my crank set, I looked at the threads carefully.
- Firstly, the cranks are painted after the thread is made, so there is quite a bit of paint inside the thread.
- Secondly, the threads on my cranks were poorly cut to start with.
- The first order of business for me was to make a chasing die out of an old set of pedals, and that helped quite a bit.
- The pedals were hard to start, and would not easily thread until one crank had been chased twice and the other chased three times.
- My slightly-janky taps removed quite a bit of material that would have interfered with proper pedal fit.
- I highly recommend that BEFORE you put your own pedals in, you should take this crank set to a local bike shop and have them use a proper set of taps to clean them out.
- Remember to use grease or anti-seize when you thread a steel pedal into these aluminum cranks.
- I checked my 3/32″ chain on the chainring to see if it would fit, and it does, but it’s very snug.
- It will rattle a bit, but I’d rather have rattle than a slipping chain.
- I personally don’t see that as a problem, but this is clearly not a racing crank, nor is it priced like one, so keep that in mind as you make your order.
- When trying to thread a crank remover tool into the crank arm, there was too much paint in the threads to allow it to properly thread and stripped what was there.
- Was not able to fully install and stripped upon removal.
- T poor quality control and excess paint made the crank set useless.
- It has a really good build design, smooth metal curves rather than the squared edges of my old silver alloy crankset.
- I’m not nearly as obsessed with a few ounces of added bike weight as other riders are, so I’m happy with it.
- There are no chips or anything and it doesn’t look like it’s just been quickly spray painted like some other colourful parts I’ve seen being sold.
- It’s all entirely blue except the chrome bolts on the chainring.
- I’ve not had a single problem with it and it does what it’s supposed to do.
- I’ll update if that changes in the future but it’s done me well so far.
- Took a 110mm square taper BB to fit the chainline on my fixed gear.
- These went on my beater/commuter bike and I think that’s where they should belong.
- They do look good, but I don’t have to worry about dinging them up because they are so cheap.
- I ended up replacing the chainring with a 45t one just because it was a better ratio, but I’m sure the stock one would hold up well.
- I was outfitting my pure fix ‘victor’ bike with all white components to set off the seafoam green color.
- These cranks were a perfect fit and are a beautiful white finish.
- Had to order a new chain ring as I’m not grinding every other tooth to make this fit.
