    BB spindle length?

    I've got a Schwinn Madison frame and an old Super Maxy crank, anyone know what bb spindle length I should use? Thanks in advance...

    if it's a track frame, i'd say go with 107-109mm. what rear hub will you be using?

    I agree, usually I choose a spindle of similar length.... I think 107.5 was the last BB I bought, worked with suzue promax, basic, bianchi pista (03), and phil wood... That was on a road conversion too, I think I had to switch which side of the crank the chainring was on to stop the chainring from scrapping on the side of the rear stays...
