I just bought a Pake track crankset for a conversion and noticed that the website where I purchased it states that is requires a 107 - 110mm spindle length BB "depending upon the build." If I need a 42 mm chainline and I have a 68 mm BB, does anyone know what spindle length I need for this crank?
Ill bet that it depends on whether you want to run the ring on the inside or the outside of the spider. Shimano 600 square taper road cranks are like that---it's 107 to run the ring on the outside, 110 on the inside. But it could be somethin g else too. Nice job with the info Paké.

good question.. i have been using the Paké track cranks for about a year now with a perfect chainline. Problem is... i don't remember what length my spindle is cuz it was so long ago. I'm totally guessing that the 110 is the right length.. i sent off an email to them and will report back when they respond.
totally happy with these cranks. the price is right.
