I posted the following question on the C&V page. Thought it might be more appropriate here:
I'm rebuilding an 80's Giant 12 speed road bike and plan on replacing the stock components with Shimano 600 EX Abaresque pieces I have acquired over the past year. The BB spindle I removed from the bike is 113MM in length. The several "Abaresque" BB spindles that I've seen on various web sites, including
e-Bay, have all been 116MM in length.
My question is, will my 113MM spindle work with the Abaresque cranks or will I need to find a spindle that is 116MM long?
