Darren, you need this BMX crank? Its perfect for an ssp. Send me a pm if you dont need them. How long should be a regular MTB axle? From where to where will it be measured?
Cheers

Maybe available Michael. Am half keeping it for my Ultimate build as I may get away with the short axle on an elevated stay bike. Haven't decided yet whether to run Cooks RSR cranks on that or Bullseys's.

how long is the axle ?


My axle length is approx 110mm. Pretty sure they are BMX specific.

Thanks Darren 8)

Surprisingly I got the black one in my photo on last saturday, so I dont really need yours. Now I can use the silver one for singlespeed and the black one for a gearing bike.

Pierre, I think the minimum spindle lenght for triple chainring should be 120mm. Now your spindle is drilled down and no one will swap with you :? Or have you an other one in stock :D ?

I would cut the axle in the middle of it, extend it to the desired length then fit a machined insert and weld it all up. You wont see it and the one you have has been modded by skimming it down. If done properly you would never know.
