so i'm building up a new bike this weekend from a kid's frame in dc (early 70's peugot track frame, french threaded) and it comes with a campy headset and a phil BB.
he currently has sugino RD's on the bike.
for his new bike he is building, he got a sugi 75 BB (english threaded) and was told that his RD's would not fit on it and he needed to have a 103 spindle length.
now here is my problem - i have Sugino 75 cranks. i was assuming that since his sugi cranks (the rd's) fit on his BB, mine should fit fine. now i am sorta bummin out thinking '****, these sugi 75s aren't gonna fit right on this phil bb' (if the rd's dont fit on a sugi 75 bb, then a sugi 75 crankset (which def. fits on a sugi 75 bb) won't fit the bb that his rd's (which don't fit on the sugi 75bb) fit on).
if my crankset won't fit on his bb, i'll be super bummed b/c i won't have time to order a correct bb from my shop before i go up to build this bike (after that i'm going to philly and NYC to ride around and do the 12 monkeys alleycat)
now, here is where i ask you, smarter BFFG folks, to calm me down.
i'm assuming his phil bb is 103 (hopefully it's not and it's more like 109)
could i put the sugi 75 cranks on a bb with a 103 spindle length, and just deal with the ****ty chainline until i can get back home and order a new BB?
