Saw a frame for sale, thought it would be ok to build up into a singlespeed but for the bb shell, as it would have been double or triple chainring would bmx cranks be any good for it? Would a converter to fit a regular bb be any good? Do they have to be compressed in with something like a headset press? I suppose they'd take a 73mm bb which I haven't got, although i've got two spare 68mm bbs!
Unfortunately it all seems like too much bother and money.
