I've just found this after a brief Internet search. Has most Shimano cranks on it, even old ones!! Never knew it existed - I will print it off for the workshop I think.

Shimano Tech Docs BB length guide

Mega useful!

I'd rather use the one the manufacturers of the parts wrote!

Sheldon wasn't always right either.....

No opinions expressed, just that the info is out there for all to see; no expressive punctuation or Smilies either for that matter...

The axle variations per model are c. 4mm, i.e. 2mm at the chainline. Barely significant even running a fixed, less so for single free and not at all for geared, surely?
