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)

Madison/Sugino GLP

alright, i'm building up a bike for my girfriend. the frame is a schwinn madison
with the original sugino glp crank. but i need a bottom bracket.

i know sugino 75's take a 109mm spindle and the sugino rd's take a 103mm.

my question is, do these sugino glp cranks take a shorter bb spindle than 109mm?




thanks

That depends. Does the frame have any bb now? You could measure it, measure the chainline, and get a bb to correct.
