Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

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...
