ive tried a 113mm, but..when the drive side crank arm is on the chain ring doesnt sit with the chain device properly.
not sure if its the crank arm or if a different crank arm would mean the chain ring would be closer to the frame?? (if you know what i mean?)
its only a few mm difference so i assume a 107mm would work with the crank i'm using,but i'd just like to know if there is actually a specific sized spindle.

i dont know anything about these but id suggest getting/using a 110 before you try a 107
trial and error :?

edit: if its a 68mm shell buy one of these to test if you dont have one lying around

the frames still got the original chain guide on it.

The original AC chain guide is very adjustable.

If your chainline is ok with the bottom bracket you've tried then I'd try spacing the chain guide to suit the chainring.
