Does anyone know, which exact crankset is pictured below? It came shipped with a Bike Friday NWT (New World Tourist)

  • Can you give a better photo of the wording on the crank arm ? Another option if it came shipped new with that crankset is to ask the seller/retailer directly.

    You should be able to find a replacement crank arm without too much trouble (far less trouble than replacing the entire crankset). The two biggest questions are what is the bolt circle diameter (fairly easy to measure), and what sort of shaft is it -- square taper or octalink. You might be able to tell this by looking at the back side of the crank arm. Note that it is a "self pulling" crank -- you don't need a crank puller to remove it, just unscrew the center bolt. (BTW, you also need the crank arm length, but that's fairly obvious.) Apr 26, 2020 at 13:30

    @ojs - I suspect that normally you'd have to buy the pair, but that's no biggie, compared to buying and installing an entire crankset (especially since there are about a dozen different "standards" for cranksets). Apr 26, 2020 at 16:39

    I still don't get how finding out the standard for single crank would be easier than for a full set, how replacing both would be significantly more difficult than replacing one or how maintaining SKUs for independent cranks in addition to sets for all length, standards, models, etc would be easier to vendors. But I guess our thought processes are different.

The logo is for brand Origin8. It is not a current production model listed on their web site, but you search search for "origin8 crank", you'll find similar looking cranksets sold simply as "Origin8 alloy crankset".

Well its not stock - it looks vaguely BMX-like to me. I do notice that it is wearing the stock BikeFriday pedals though.

That model of bike looks like this new:

From Bike Friday website.

A zoom of the crankset shows a triple:

Though other bikes in their range come with single and double chainring options too, none look like your single chainring.


I've also searched the catalogue at https://www.bikefriday.com/userfiles/Bike.Friday.Catalog.Silk.pdf and no BF bike has that crankset.
