    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.
    Anyone?
    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.

    Look down at the bottom of the page on the left hand side for spindle lenghts.

    That was the standard crank on the Fuji Touring Series III so throwing that into your search might be helpful. Here's a relevant BF thread: http://www.bikeforums.net/showthread...Headset-amp-BB...

    Thanks Tom,

    Will give it a try with a 127 and see how it goes.

    I don't know what you're suppose to use, but I think I'm using a 115 with a double on one bike and that is about as close as it gets before it hits the frame.

    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.)

    Was going to use a new symmetrical bottom bracket and didn't realize that the RT took an asymmetrical spindle.
    Is "Loose Screws" a good place to locate bottom bracket spacers?
    thanks for the help guys
