I'm replacing the crank/BB on my Schwinn '77 Super Le Tour fixie conversion. I ordered a pair of Mavic CXP-22s with the Formula flip/flop hub. According to Sheldon Brown's site, the chainline for those hubs is 42mm.
Sheldon's site also says that the only BB spindle length that will keep the 42mm chainline is a 103mm spindle. And the only BBs that do a 103mm spindle that they know of are the Phil Woods (too expensive) and the Sugino BB105, which they sell for $30.
I want to get my crankset/chainring in black and figured I'd go with the Sugino Messenger arms and 48t chainring. (Both available at Universal Cycles: Chainring link and crank link)
Everything looks like it matches up: the cranks are 130mm and so is the chainring. the Spindles are JIS sqaures...
So am I right? Can I go with the 103mm BB (68mm width with English thread), the Messenger cranks and the Messenger chainring?
Anyone else using the Formula Hubs try anything different?
