I'm looking at getting a new bottom bracket for a Raleigh Randenneur I'm picking up today. What is the bottom bracket width on them?
Thanks

Or do you mean the axle length? If so your best bet is to google which length for the crank that is fitted.

Thanks, it's first time I'm working with square BB (sorry I'm only 24...)

I thought the lengths meant BB shell width.

The standard width is 68mm wide BB shell for English threading (ie - opposite threading each side). Italian threading (generally only found on Italian frames) is 70mm.

Generally width refers to the shell width, length refers to axle (spindle) length....

Did you get the bike today?
