I use 28/38/52 on my Schwinn and find them a good spread. I only ever use the outer two- very rarely use the smaller ring.
I'm now looking for a DX to build up with a 2 speed coaster rear and have a few cranksets in the mix- Another TA with 175 arms and a 48 ring, a pair of Nervars with a 52T and some early Suntour Mighty's with a 52T.

I agree that sourcing parts is not too difficult over in Europe- a few things like frame and forks and Ashtabula stems are the only things you need from the States.

Give it a go- they are beautiful bikes, and great fun to ride out on the trails.

Great project

Cranks: You already filed something away at both transitions spider-arm?

No, I haven't filed anything. Although I have researched these cranks enough to know what you are talking about, (no there aren't any cracks yet), I have not filed on them to prevent them from forming cracks in the future. Do you have a good link on the best approach?
Thanks,
T
