"I'm building up a single speed/fixed gear commuter and I need cranks. Ideally, I'm looking for (but I'm willing to compromise):

- double or single chainring cranks
- accepts square tapered bottom bracket
- 172.5 or shorter (the shorter, the better)
- 130mm or 110mmBCD or other ""standard"" size
- 5 arms
- cosmetic damage ok
- cheap - less than +-$30

Craigslist posts

I read the bicycle ads on craigslist every day. Has anyone else noticed that several of them have poped up on this message board recently.

I have no problem with NYCC members posting items for sale. Something tells me the craigslist posts might not be members :)

I have been wrong before, and I might be again!

how about functional?

"I've got a set of Ultegra cranks that meets all of your requirements. Not only real cheap, but super light weight, too. One caveat though. Cosmetic damage includes missing 1/2 a crank arm. Who needs a whole when simply one crank arm will do, preferably a left one. Afterall, it hasn't slowed one of NYC's finest messengers Dexter Benjamin

Email me if interested (take the ""at"" and ""dot"" garbage out of the email address of course.)"
