Anyone know spindle length for Sugino Triple RT (DRT)?
Have a Sugino RT triple crankset that I would like to use on a build but can't seem to find a suggested spindle length anywhere. Checked Sheldon's, Sutherlands, here, Velobase.
Help appreciated or if you can guide me to a source.
I think most of those used an offset spindle. You might get by with a 122, but if 127 is not long enough, you might be SOL. I think Sugino uses 8mm spacing between chainrings and an asymmetrical spindle. You could try and mount a bottom bracket and then mount the crank without the small chain ring and see what it gets you. I had an issue with trying to mount a Sugino AT triple on my Trek 7.3 and found I could not get a reasonably priced spindle long enough as I needed something around 130mm. Once you need something longer than 127, about the only options seem to be Phil Woods, which are not inexpensive.
May well need to use a spacer on the drive side, 2 or 3mm, to mimic the asymmetrical spacing. I keep a small stash of 1mm, 2mm, and 3mm spacers for this purpose (I am assuming you are using a new symmetrical bb.)
