    Hey guys! It's been a month of screwing around with my bike, but I'm finally gonna get it working! I found a chop shop who will machine new mounts for my bike so that the engine lines up correctly.

    I may, however, need more pedal clearance.

    I have a schwinn landmark cruiser.

    Which crankset would you reccomend? Kings has a full set (for like $50, meh), but does kings have good service?


    Most importantly, are all bicycle cranks a standard size? If I buy a replacement wide pedal crank, will it fit?


    THANKS GUYS!

    I have been wondering this as well. When you say engine clearance, what are you referring to?

    Pedal clearance. He's moving the engine over so that the sprocket lines up, so I need to give him more pedal clearance.

    If you're not into heating and bending your stock crank out, (or do that until your parts come in :p)

    I found these but they say out of stock till mid july still:
    Should contact them and see what's up.
    Wide Crank Pedal Kit [4S-CDS-WCPK] - $29.99

    SBP has conversion kits to switch to a 3-piece:
    you'd need the adapters and a cartridge- different widths different prices
    -or the conversion kit if you have a shaft you can use
    Sick Bike Parts LLC - Performance parts for your motorized bicycle

    I've heard nothing bad about Kings, but haven't dealt with them personally(yet), sorry.

    You know, when I'm not looking for them, I keep running across wide-crank kits. I would venture to say there's a few out there to choose from. Take some measurements and do some poking around online. They should start popping up for you.

    Thanks guys. I bought a kit from RAW.

    Allen_Wrench, I already shopped around. I was simply wondering if anyone had suggestions as to which vendor would be best.
