I've just got myself a 91 HooKooEKoo with the press fit BB however the supplied BB axle is too short (113) for my old XT cranks - I need 127mm. Are these still available or is it a lost cause?

action tec http://www.actiontec.us/attack.htm could be the expensive answer for a replacement axle. or you could try looking on www.wundels.com or www.fatcogs.com to see what the klein & fat chance guys are using.

I've got a 127mm ti spindle that may work, but I'm pretty sure it's for 73mm bottom brackets. What size is yours?

I might have an extra axle for the pressed-in Fisher 88 mm BB. They are not like the the normal axles, because of the bearings and the width of the BB. I found these a while back on eBay and bought some more! See pics below. PM me if interested!
