hi guys
im after a bit of advice! any help would be greatly appreciated!
i recently got some very nice topline cranks to go on my xizang frame project (thanks jez!).
when i tried fitting them the drive side is fine (if anything a little far out), but the left side crank hits the chainstay. ive just got the ruler out and the BB a 118.
does anyone know what size BB works out best for these cranks? my shell is a 73. i dont mind having to buy a new BB but ive got a feeling it might be tricky trying to track down the right one...
cheers!
mike
