Cotterless Conundrum - No Pin Intended
I thought I'd start fresh here and get some feedback on what my options are so I can move fwd with a clear head. I have a 76 Raleigh Grand Prix frame that was primered and a cotterless square tapered bb installed. I normally deal with cottered cranks so I'm not sure how to move forward. I've read Sheldon's article
on cottered to cotterless to learn more. But I don't know what type of crankarms or crankset I need.
Here's what I know. I measured the full spindle length from end to end and it measure 113mm. I pulled out the spindle and it's stamped SUGINO MW70. I'd like to run a double crank (your basic 52-42) but don't have any square tapered cranks lying around. What will work with a 113mm overall length?
Not exactly vintage, but I did find this SHIMANO crankset
. Would it work given what I've mentioned above? As you can tell, I'm new to this and have digested quite a bit of info today. So forgive me if I've left anything out.
