Guys, I recently bought a Parkpre Comp Limited steel frame, without a bottom bracket. My question is can anyone tell me what size bracket I need to buy? Or if not, how do I calculate what size bracket I will need to buy? I am pretty sure its a 68mm, but its the length I am not so sure about......

STX RC cranks, stx rc rear mech, deore DX bottom pull front mech.

Actually just found a chart on Sheldon Browns page giving bottom bracket sizes to fit various makes of crank, very useful (as he always is):-)
