Greetings! Long time reader, First time poster...
I have an old Peugeot frame (roughly 125 mm rear spacing) lying around and I'd like to use it. Yes, I know it's probably more trouble than it's worth, but I don't mind. I was cruising the webs and noticed Velo Orange carries an Edco Competition bottom bracket which is french threaded ( http://www.velo-orange.com/edbobr.html ). I want to know if i could make a fixed gear conversion work with this bottom bracket (it has a 122 mm spindle). The interesting thing about the bottom bracket is that it uses two lock rings and you can make adjustments for the chain line.
So i guess what i want to know is could I make this work without too much hastle using standard 42mm chain line components (120 mm rear hub and track crank) with the use of appropriate spacers and dishing if necessary.
I'm not very familiar with conversions, especially Peugeot.
