Putting on a SS, what is the good and bad? Suggest BMX cranks to use (looking at the FSA Wild Child), decent yet priced right? Chainwheels, will they work with my King Kog and 3/32 chain? If I have to get a 1/8 chain will it work with my Kog (assume not)? Thanks.

BMX cranks work great. Lots of chainwheels available and spiders that let you use 94 or 110 bcd rings, too. There are both 1/8" and 3/32" chainwheels. You can use an 1/8" chain on 3/32" rings/cogs but not a 3/32" chain on 1/8" rings/cogs.

Thanks! Typically like on my fixed I know/got all 1/8 and same with road/mtb, 3/32 so not sure what combos ok to mix and match. Rather do a 1/8 chain anyway...
Ok... so...
3/32 cog + 1/8 chain + 1/8 chainwheel, ok?
or
3/32 cog + 1/8 chain + 3/32 chainwheel, required to get a 3/32 wheel?
