    Phil BB adjustablity

    so i did a search and only found minimal info on this... according to the Phils page, the cups provide 5mm chainline adjustment. does that mean that a 107mm spindle can actually be adjusted up to 112? how's this work?

    I think it's 5mm total, so 2.5 mm toward either side. Not sure exactly though. I'll let you know in a month or two when I get mine.

    If the BB is centered you have 2.5mm of movement to the left or right, so the total is 5mm of left to right.
    So if you had a 108 and it gave you a 41mm chainline you could shift to the right for a 43.5 chainline as long as the left crank has clearance with the stay.

    That ought to make sense?
    If not let me know.

    Hey, I'm getting a Phil BB too in the next few weeks.
    Go us.
    Just out of curiosity, how much are guys expecting to spend?

    the average new price is around $130 for the bb and mounting rings, i believe.

    Since there are two mounting rings on each side, this is how the alignment is controlled. So it can be verrrrry fine tuned and still be solid in the BB shell.

    I actually just bought the wrong size BB for my geared machine, and this play in the alignment is the only reason I was able to get the crank/der to work at all.

    Grumble. Guess I get to build a mtb now.

    Don't forget the Phil tools that you'll need. Two make it easier. They look like little gears.
