You're an animal!

If you want it, I have an older crank / internal bb you can have..
I think it's 170mm, pedal thread is 1/2" (I have beefy platform pedals for it)

Thanks for the offer. I found an SLX crank at blueskycycling for $135, so I jumped on it.

I see it was the crank arm on your single speed. I've broke a couple also. I wonder if its a common thing with single speeds? How did you do it?
Do the thing that is hard to do and the power will come.

Luckily, I was just starting off up Bipolar. I thought the freehub pawls stripped or something. It could have been ugly. :shock:
