    CrankArm spacing between stays & crankarm

    I just slapped on a old pair of Dra Ace 175mm cranks and they barely clear the stays. What is the min clearance and do I just need to geta longer BB?

    Minimum clearance is they don't hit. ;-)

    You might want to measure the chainline though, as explained at:
