I want a new frame but the one i have now has unsealed cranks so i was wondering if i could still put sealed bearings on the same cranks to fit the new frame

and you would have to buy new cranks to work with sealed bb because your spindle has threads on it right?

get a crank and bb kit and be done with it. plus a newer crank would be a upgrade anyway.
