"proper" nerd cranks are any 94bcd crank (either double or triple, it means you can run 46/30 on the 94bcd spider).
Ritchey logic are the best example being nicely made and apparently lowish Q.
(sugino OX601/901 etc are also nerd cranks despite being 110/74 cos special chain rings, designed for being 110/74 double, etc.)

If your cranks are actually 94 BCD buffoon would you consider shipping to prison island?

Ritchey logic 110/74BCD triple can be nerd crank converted but as your on the inner 110 and 74bcd for the 30t (or less) ring you can't get superlow Q while maintaining workable chainline. I'm currently running this setup, and there are other issues you might run into including chain ring bolts in the "big ring" sticking out into the chain when on the "granny" 74bcd ring (assuming that, like me your using a ramped and pinned "outer" 46t 110 ring which means the recesses for the bolt heads are on the wrong side of the ring) and the spacers that are used on the 74 BCD can cause the chain to fall between rings. these things can be fixed with judicious selection of rings, bolts and spacers (or filing spacers if needed, just not plug and play)

Done
I though most of the above was common tarck knowledge (and i absorbed it by osmosis from much lurking) though????
i dunno where i got the idea that trying to make a 110/74 into a 46/30 beardo double was really a good idea, but i had a surfeit of cranks BBs in a variaty of lenghtways and chainrings in the right sizes to try it out. it works OK enough for my 7 sp garbage bike but not good enough that i'd go out and spend the money on new chain rings even if i managed to score a nice set of 110/74 cranks (the rithey logic cranks are very nicely made)

I agree it's common knowledge, but you articulated it well and there are still longtime users, like Straws, who don't know what we are talking about.

I remembered wrong. It's a bit more worn than I thought. I can do $15 shipped if you want.

I think the Ritchey nerd cranks got their status as nerd cranks because, for a long time, they were one of the very few options that can be used as sub-compact road crank.
The unique thing about them is that they can be used with low q-factor unlike the other 94bcd mountain bike cranks.

94bcd mountain bike cranks are plentiful and cheap, but they have mountain bike q and a lot of people don't like using them on the road.

Using 110/74 bcd cranks as subcompact is ugly, have a not-narrow-but-not-stupid-wide-Q, and cheap. They are a sensible and readily obtainable solution, and therefore will never be the object of desire for nerds.

I'm using a Token 102mm ISO BB on mine, not really any shorter BBs readily available and it's ISO so they sit further inboard. Even with all that the chainline is still wider than OX901s. (I haven't measured the Q).

The shimano 94/58 cranksets used 110mm BBs (eg /FC-M739) for a 47.5mm chainline, so there's not much scope to go shorter but maybe just enough, the JIS ones are garbage, so that leaves the 102mm Token or a $$$ chorus 101mm.

Did they not believe you when you said 100x15, 142x12, or were you just using it as an excuse to break out the digital calipers?
