I was at sport chalet today and ran across a Bottom Bracket Truvati 113/68 Power Spline. Says it is a **** Spline. So I am assuming I need some different type of cranks for it. Any recommendations? The normal price was $39, it was reduced to $2.95 and then was 50% off that. Could not pass it up :)

Yes, you will need the exact match. When it comes to crank splines, the International Anti Standards and Confusion Committee decided that there should be at least 3 axle spline types that look alike but are not compatible. Murphy's Law will now dictate that you have the most expensive and rare type. You know the game....
