I converted a cheap-o department store bike into a beater single speed. The only problem is the chainline really sucks. I'm using a single-speed Shimano cog in the back, and a chainring on the middle-ring location of a triple crankset. The problem is that the chainring is too far from the frame. I'd like to bring it closer and I think a shorter BB spindle is the best idea. Short of taking the cranks off, how can I tell what length I have? If you had to guess, what length BB spindle would you choose to move the chainline ~5mm closer to the frame?
