    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

    IRD QB 55 or 75, depending on the cup material/weight, they come in 103,107, 110, 113, 115, 118, 122, 127.5

    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...
