    Looking For 3H-B Bottom Bracket Spindle

    Does anyone know where I can get a 3H-B Bottom Bracket Spindle? Harris Cyclery is out of stock.

    Thanks!

    Spindles are getting harder and harder to find.

    IF you get desperate, Loose Screws has "S" types.

    You could "flip" it and only have your chain line be off by 4.5MM.
    Not elegant by any means, but a last resort.
    BTW, I bought one and their measurements seem to match better than Sheldon's.

    3H spindles are symmetrical. I'd just replace the whole BB with a 113mm cartridge if I were you.
    If this isn't preferable, call some LBSs. The more commonly sized spindles are still available. The 3H is one of those.

    Thanks for the info, guys. I took it to the bike shop; turns out it was a 111 mm spindle. I ordered a new cartridge to fit.
