    Campy Crankset and Campy BB, will these work?

    Sorry for this question but I have been confused by all the different lengths of bottom brackets. My question is this:

    I have a frame being custom built right now and I want to start looking into getting parts. I have saved a lot of money and I'm lucky to be in the position to buy some Campys, which is something I've always admired since the older days. So, will these two parts work together to provide a straight chainline?

    Thanks for any help.

    Why is that BB labeled 'Track only' ?

    Cool, thank you. Will they give a straight chainline?

    The bike is a fixed-gear with a 120 mm rear drop-out. I will use a 120 mm flip-flop hub.

    Thanks, again.

    Because they are smart people who know what they're talking about.

    .
    If you're asking this, you clearly didn't read post #2.

    depends on cog and hub also. straight being relative.

    Post #2 tells me that the two parts are made for each other; however, it doesn't say anything about chainline.

    Thanks, this is helpful. I suspected that there are other variables involved in a straight chainline beyond two parts that are made for each other. I'll give the link a good read.

    Thanks again for your help.
