I have always wanted a mk2 Peugeot Vitus 979 and now I have one en-route to me as below.If the condition is as good as it looks then I will be v. happy. I am intending to build it with C-record. Now I have done a full C-record build previously on a steel frame and used a 111 mm spindle length BB but is this still relevant for the 979 frame or does it need to be longer . I have heard tales of the inner chainring rubbing the chainstay if you don`t do your homework?. Is there anyone out there who has mated a 979 with a C-record chainset who can kindly advise me. I believe it is standard English thread ? and I will be using a sealed bearing bb. Thanks Andrew

I had a Duralinox in 1990 and had it fitted out with C Record. I'm sure I used the C Record BB axle or a Super Record turned back to front.
I hope that this is of some use to you! :|
