The best deal I've found on cranks / BB are here:

http://www.atomlab.com/webstore.html

WTF do you mean they blew your hub and who is they? If you're buying a hub you need to make sure it's 135mm in width for the rear. No regular BMX hub will work with a frame designed for 8-9 speed cassette. If you're going that route I just suggest purchasing the Azonic Outlaws wheel set. They retail for $330 for the whole set but you can get them cheaper.

Anyway, I hope this helps even though this post isn't too clear.

the answer to that question is still yes

but r those fools who trashed ur bike gonna fix it for free? have you thrown a shtfit at them yet? and what is blown and irreplaceable about your hub? did the spokes rip the flanges apart? free test ride anyone?

final thoughts- Dont trust and/or depend on bike shops
never let them touch ur setup
If u want a single speed kit spend the extra ten bucks for a cassette tool and if your to cheep to get a whip rig a chainwhip with an old chain and vice grip
stock your own spare parts before they break and have all the tools to rebuild so you can when u need to(replacables,chains, brake parts, grips, forks(marz)...)
i dont recommend rigging tools but what u got is better than a trip to the lbs

Yeah... I doubt they broke it. A shop ride doesn't consist of more than a ride around the parking lot to make sure it works... if that.

There have been bikes I've test rode after I've done work to it and I can agree with XSL. Even though the bike is amazing and I want to ride the heck out of it I fight the urge. It's not my bike to abuse, I have my own to do that.
