Ayup,

My frame has a 68mm bottom bracket shell and I have a nice shiny set of Cooks E cranks. What length axle should I use? :roll:

Cheers,

Owen

Thats for a standard cooks - e-cranks need a 113.5mm on a 68mm shell. Fairly easy to get as shimano make 'em!

Only reason I know is I've been fitting an RSR on one bike and an e crank on the other just recently! after going through dozens I found sheldon and the bikepro pages and bingo! If I knew those off by heart then I truely would be sad!
