    Hello All,

    Still throwing around the recumbent idea, and I have been searching online with no luck so far...

    Looking for a bolt on pedal crank (single sprocket is fine) that would bolt on the the metal frame, instead of cannibalizing one from a bicycle!

    Any ideas where one of these might be found?

    There are kidback cranks used on tandems that bolt to a tube. There are BB on a boom that recumbent manufactures use. What kind of mounting are you trying to accomplish.

    The frame would most likely be aluminum C channel.... so preferably a crank with a flat base or mounting point for easy attachment to the C channel.

    Thank you kindly for any leads...

    Go to a search engine and type in lugless bottom brackets. There are SS steel, Chrome Molly steel, just steel, aluminum, titanium. There is the standard width of 68-70mm and there are wider versions. There are other than English threaded which you probably do not want so be observant. I can bring up the posted link and see the picture. The link i posted was to show you an example of what one looked like since I do not know what you need. I hope this helps.
