Evenin' all,

I may be in the process of building a road bike for my 6 yr old daughter. See the thread re packaging as to how it arrived. I might rebuild it but i need a lot of odd bits - odd wheels may be available - but i might be able to do something with the ones which came with it. But, the cranks are in a bad way - has anyone any bright ideas where i could source cranks which are 113mm in length (total length). They are cottered and i would prefer cotterless but then the BB is the issue.

All ideas welcome, pics might follow soon

Thanks,

Richard

p.s. they don't have to be Campag or Shimano DA!!!!!!!!!!!! :D

Will - Will have the cranks? I think he will have but TGR will have to wait until Will has found them, until then he will have to wait!

I have a single ring crankset for sale with 140mm cranks that fits a square taper BB. Not particularly light but in excellent condition.

Ned, thanks for the offer but they are a little long - 110mm is ctc length. Saying that it would be interesting to see my 6 yr old on the bike with 140 cranks on it!!! Child protection issue again? i'll get my coat........

Thanks,

Richard
