Campy BB with Superbe Pro Crankset
I am building a bike mostly with 70s and 80s campy NR and SR components. So far I have a Campy BB with 114.5 spindle, SR front derailleurs from late 70s/early 80s. I have been lurking on Ebay looking to snag an SR or C-record crankset (yes I am a lurker and make no apologies, its the only way to win ;-)) but so far have gotten outbid or prices have gone above my max (outlurked by other lurkers). Just saw a nice set of Superbe Pro cranks so am thinking that I might try for those since no Campys are coming up for several more days. I have read through threads on matching BBs with Superbe pro cranks but the fundmentals of chainline defy my ability to understand. While I gather from Sheldon Brown that 111mm Campy spindle would be ideal, can someone with several point higher IQ than me tell me whether my campy 114.5 spindle and SR front derailleur from late 70s or early 80s will work with Superbe Pro double chainring Cranks from 1985?
