Short 130mm cranks for 104/64mm BCD

Short 130mm 104/64mm BCD cranks

Basically, there is almost nothing like this commercially available.  At least, I wasn't able to find any.  Consequently, the only way to get a pair was to make some. I started with a set of Truvative FiveD square taper cranks in 175mm long.

For the finish, I decided on a burnished look.

These cranks can also take a granny ring, and the benefit with square taper cranks is that you can use different width bottom brackets to get the chainline just perfect.
