Question on bottom bracket spindle width
This question regards Phil Wood bottom brackets, but probably relates to any BBs.
Is the difference in spindle length all on the drive side, or is it split between the left and right side?
To explain this more clearly: if I have a 116mm bottom bracket and a 111mm bottom bracket, the difference is 5mm. Is it 5mm shorter on the drive side, or is it 2.5mm shorter on the left, and 2.5mm shorter on the right?
