The Vuelta Pista Track Bike Crankset is a great way to trick out your track bike, or just get a little extra performance out of that single speed you've been pedaling around. This track crankset is designed to provide miles of smooth performance anywhere you choose to ride, on or off the velodrome.
Forged alloy crankarms provide plenty of stiffness
You aren't paying for an awesome track crank. The price is good for crankset of any sort, but lacks in quality. Even with perfect chainline, the chainring is loud in the drivetrain. It's not because of a misshaped ring either, it's the cranks.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
144BCD is the major selling point! Chain ring is 3/32 and junk(at best), but it's [$]! Point is you have a solid crank arm for thrashing. I'm running 107 bottom bracket and that gave me a chain line of 47, moved ring to inside for a chain line of 40. I DID recommend it to a friend, but I wouldn't do it again, however, i would not not recommend it to a friend knowing what you're getting.
Good solid crank and not a heavyweight. Since I'm a trackie, I appreciate that it is 144bcd. I can use my track chainrings and don't have to change to a different bolt pattern. Great price and solid performance.
