Grrr! Camping :evil:

On another note, what is the default spindle length for 1990's MTB's with 73mm bb thingies.

I need a BB for the Saracen Hardtrax I'm buiding up for a friend and I'm fitting a Specialised crank from around that time I bought off Lewis1641.

Any words of wisdom?

Strangely Rob was asking a similar question - what I do (and you are welcome to borrow) is have a selection of old BBs of varying spindle lengths. I try each in turn until I find the one that fits then buy the new equivalent :D

How do you know it fits...what is the indicator?

Oh, and does it matter if the bike is singlespeed?

when the crankset is put on and the chainline is right. Yes it does matter slightly more for singlespeed.

I enquired on the Dyna Tech string and Old Ned suggested 122.5, so being impatient I bought one from Evans. Don't have a chainring yet so don't know if it was a sensible purchase.

Pines looking a good collection of folks.
