Mavic BB / Campy Crank

I just purchased a Steel Moser with a Mavic Square Taper BB. Do I have to use a Mavic crank or can I use a Campy Crank? Mavic are hard to come by. Thanks

Mavic uses the ISO standard, IIRC. Campy crank should work with it just fine.

The square tapers will be compatible. The spindle length may or may not be correct so you will have to fit up the crank to see that the chainrings clear the frame and if the chainline is good.
