Bought this crank to convert a 30 year old MTB frame to a 1x6 for winter commuting. A major issue was that the paint was so thick that it interfered with the operation of the crank. The chain rode on the teeth of the crank and was suck up underneath it. This caused the crank to throw the chain off with the lightest brush.

As another reviewer had mentioned the remedy for the above problem is to sand the teeth. I started with a light sanding of the tips of the teeth and a little bit between them with 150 grit paper. I reinstalled the crank, same problem. I then sanding more aggressively, further down the sides of the teeth with 100 grit sandpaper. Still didn't work. I then sanded off the paint from the sides of the teeth to the "gum-line". This solved the problem. The frustrated final round of sanding ruined some of the finish because of over sanded, but I was so happy that it finally worked that I didn't care.

The installation of the crank was frustrating, took extra time. However, I would recommend this crank because of its fantastic price. I've attached a photo of my sanding job.

Comments about Retrospec 3-PIECE Cranks:

Looks good, works well, my only complaint is that either the paint in the threads hinders a puller or the pitch itself is not the common thread and you should be very careful using a crank puller with it. Mine's never coming off, unfortunately - but not a problem because it seems to be a quality product! Go for it, you can't beat the price, period.

    Comments about Retrospec 3-PIECE Cranks:

    These things bolted right up without any problems. Looks pretty rad too. I have put over 400 miles on them in the short time I have had them. I ride trails and distance. None of the paint on the crank arms has come off, nor is anything tweaked. I am a 160 lbs rider. The cranks and ring has survived multiple little 10 foot drops and severe pressure being applied up steep hills. This is a great product and at really good price!

      Comments about Retrospec 3-PIECE Cranks:

      To the guy in the 1st review that gave the 3 star review.. You had issues because you used a 8/9 speed chain (Sram PC870) which is a 3/32" chain. The crank is a 1/8". If you would have used the correct chain then you wouldn't have to had modified it or had any issues. These are meant for single speed use not 1x6,1x7,1x8 or 1x9 bikes.

      Best Uses

        Comments about Retrospec 3-PIECE Cranks:

        Bought this crank a couple weeks ago for a 1x8 build and I love it so far. The only problem I had was the powdercoat was too thick and the chain kept getting held up on the crank. Took some 400 grit sand paper and just lightly went over the teeth. Worked just great after that.

        I got the 44t in orange a few months ago to go onto my old peugeot and it works great, every thing is smooth and clean about still, even after the many miles I put on it. If your building a single speed or fixed gear I can pretty much guarantee that you wont find a better crank with this many options of colors and ring size for a better price. Get this crank, it wont dissapoint.

        Comments about Retrospec 3-PIECE Cranks:

        I ordered the 44t, works just fine and the BCD just happened to match spare chainrings lying around. I can keep the awesome red cranks and still change up my fixed gear.
        The only problem is that the paint does scratch easily, and chips and flakes at the chainring bolts.
