    Two quick thoughts:

    1. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. (Which means if you like the Centurion and you can't easily "make it better", then ride it as-is.)
    2. You don't have enough bikes. (Which...

    We all wish. There are several tried-and-true methods:

    Trial and error, see what works.
    Measure the old one.
    Borrow a spindle or two.
    Ask someone who has the same crank.

    "...and it makes [single malt] drinkers feel hip and intellectual even if it tastes like crap."
