Hi, I was wondering if anyone could tell me where I could find some lightweight cranks that come in 160mm with a low q factor. I have been looking at BMX cranks, and the best I have been able to find so far are the FSA carbon pro bmx cranks, which are 414 grams. I am unsure what their q factor is though.

I'm planning to build my own low Q carbon cranks. If interested send me an email.

I've been on that unicorn hunt as well, so I'd be interested in the cranks Don S is planning, and arms shorter than 160mm are also desirable.

TA has nice cranks available from PJ White's shop that would probably fit your need. Sugino shows Mighty Tour 110s cranks on their web page, titled as 'new', fitting a traditional tapered axle fit. I haven't been able to find a single North American importer willing to acquire them. Does anyone have a shop contact in Japan who is willing to sell directly to foreign customers?
