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)

FSA Vero 170mm 42t Crankset: Spindle Length?

Hello all,

Building up a Peugeot UO-8 frame as a run of the mill NYC SS roadie. Picked up a FSA Vero 170mm 42t Crankset and am having trouble definitively locating a recommended spindle length for it.

Any help? 107mm? 110mm?

Also... side note: any opinions on Velo-Orange Grand Cru French BBs?

THANKS in advance

OK, rephrase. Sorry... Basically: I know the Velo-Orange has JIS taper, just making sure the FSA Vero also is JIS. Appears to be. This Campy BB I just tried is apparently ISO tapered. Yuck.

That confusion aside -- Spindle length recommendations still welcomed

THANKS

I saw a picture of a caliper on a stock SST/Clockwork BB a while back in a thread and it was 103mm. My SST has a FSA Vero.

I can't find the thread...

While un-boxing the SST...
