Fixed/Freewheel Build on Track Frame : Some tech questions before I buy parts..
I have a CIOCC Mockba 80 (reissued) singlespeed/fixie frame and planning to do a build with some old parts I have lying around. The parts I plan to re-use is
- shimano 600ex quill stem, 120mm
- ultegra 6600 brake calipers
therein lies the next question, I have a Shimano Sante crank (170mm) and a italian threaded bottom bracket (square tapered) and was wondering if it can be used on this track frame. The Sante crank and BB are from an old steel road bike (126mm rear dropout spacing) which I decommissioned some years back, they are in good condition. Will I be needing a new bottom bracket? does this have a huge impact on 'chainline'?
Also, I need to swap out the double chainring and put in a single one. I do not know what is the BCD for the Sante crankset, I assume its standard with shimano of the day?
For the wheels, I'm planning a simple build, 32 spoke on a track fixed/free hub using mavic open pros.
