• Was it always custom fgfs cranks people ran or?

  • Standard bmx cranks

  • Threaded bmx bb was a thing for a while.

    It was called 'euro' and it was pretty shit.

    The small shell and large axle meant tiny bearings which didn't last long at all. I remember mates with euro frames going through a bb a week.

    If you must do it, use a crank like a Profile that has a 19mm axle as opposed to cranks like Primos that use 22mm axle.

  • Ok seen a bunch of cheap ones with 19mm bb, bought a cheap fgfs frame and trying to build under 150

  • seen a bunch of cheap ones with 19mm bb

    Sorry if this is teaching you to suck eggs but you know the cranks are unlikely to come with the bottom bracket right?

    You'll need to buy the bb separately.

  • That's because they didn't use these...

  • I found a quite a few used with euro bb, maybe im lucky?

  • +1 for the Profile cranks. I use an Odyssey BB with mine, and other than a few creaks, no problems. Cranks weigh a fucking ton though.

  • Thanks for the help, just grabbed a set of atomlabs with a Odyessy eure bb cheap, now to understand bmx chainrings ...
