Crank options? (oddly specific requirements)

Hi,

Trying to sprint home yesterday I managed to strip the thread from the drive side crank, flinging my pedal down the road.

Pedal is almost ok, now has some play in the axle.


Anyway. Can someone recommend me a crank-set that is 165mm, uses a JIS Square taper BB, 130BCD and is silver?

The bike is singlespeed (its a Giant Bowery 72).

Also as the bike is less than a year old, is it worthwhile looking into the warranty as there's a years warranty on parts apparently?

    Yeah, I saw those. However the point of my question was to find a decent pair as opposed to any pair. Ok, yeah I'm after a set urgently, but a nice pair would be nice.

    Im not contemplating getting a 144bcd set and new chainring as this seems to be where the better cranks are.

    you can get TA Carmina arms in 165mm and then fit whatever spider you want (130bcd, 110, 4-bolt etc.)

    Amazing crankset - but very spendy indeed.

    Nice that you can do whatever you want with the cranks in the future by changing spiders etc. (currently have mine as a triple).

    They look rather tasty as well.

    or just get the current cranks fixed.

    most good bike shops should be able to install a thread saver.
