    Question for those who use Shimano 600 cranks...

    With the chainring on the outside:

    1. What side BB are you using?

    2. What is your chainline?


    I'm planning a new build and will most likely be using these cranks. I'd like to get my chainline nailed from the get-go.

    Is there anything I should be taking into consideration?

    Any help appreciated.

    I had a pair of 600 (old ultegra) cranks on my cross bike when it was fixed/ss a few years back. I can't remember the any thing specific about them other than they worked great. A friend of mine crashed riding fixed in a cross race and killed em. I would still have em other wise.

    I'm not one for fawning over bicycles, but I do believe that our bikes communicate with us, and what this bike is saying is, "You're an idiot." BikeSnobNYC
