    I would suspect the HS would 1" JIS. the BB is a slightly different story, while I again would suspect the shell is english 1.37x24 the spindle will depend on what crankset you intend to use.

    spindles come in sizes from a scant 102mm for the newest Campi cranks to 122+ for older road and ATB triples.

    well considering that 1 1/8 and 1 25 are too big, what do the force tells you?? The master 2 posts before told you all the teachings to solve your "force" predicament.

    "use the force, luke!"
