    Converting a Schwinn Varsity, what crankset with a 110mm BB?

    Yes, yes. i know its useless to convert it, so i don't want to hear it from anybody.

    i already bought the FMF conversion kit and BB (110x68 un26) and i just need a set of cranks that'll give it a decent chainline (i have Velocities with formula hubs if that helps)

    Off the top of the head, IRO cranks call for a 110 BB.

    Why did you buy the bottom bracket before the crank?

    people doing the same conversion recommended 110mm so i just took their word for it. i just assumed it has something to do with the conversion.

    Back to the TOPIC.
