Assuming a bb width of 73mm, what kind of spindle length should I be looking for to run with a set of E cranks? Are they considered "low profile," or what?

A local shop has a sweet, NOS White Industries titanium bb with a 117mm spindle. Would it fly?


Thanks

I always used a 113mm on a 68mm so I suppose a 117mm on a 73mm should work but could be a little long, but if its a WI just adjust it over so that theres more axle on the non drive side.

thanks for the info - I must be the only guy in town who thinks the stuff that's been sitting in their display case for 10 years is worth a damn. I'll probably walk out with the BB for $50.00. So no real loss if I can't get it dialed in. I'll just have a nice BB laying around.

BBs always an under-rated bit of kit, needs to be as flash as possible and the WI is one of those real flash ones, and at $50 you can't go wrong!
