    small BB spindle on larger crank

    so i have a 103mm BB spindle and a sugino crank that says shold use a 110mm spindle, i put it on the other day and it didnt bottom out against the BB casing or anything and goes on and comes off smoothly and rides smooth. just wondering what the problems are with this if there are any? the only difference i can see is that you would have a lower q factor. i know that you are not supposed to do this though. thanks
