Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Shimano DA 7400 BB spindle

Okay...this is a bit of a noob question.
Does the spindle on this BB have a specific orientation? I'm only asking because its already installed and the chainline is out about 3mm. I wonder if flipping the spindle will help move the drive side closer to the frame. The amount of spindle showing doesn't appear to be equal. Can you tell I'm a shadetree mechanic.

Worked perfectly.
I'm jazzed that this BB fits perfect with my NOS DA crankset.
