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)

Raleigh High Life specs

Anyone know where to find the BB length I need on the Raleigh High Life I just took delivery of?

If you can't find the answer online, you could try Raleigh customer service (253) 395-1100.

Sometimes a simple call is quicker then searching all over the internet.

^ What he said.

I was mistaken and thought you were asking for the BB shell size. The BB spindle length is dependent on your chainline and frame geometry.

The Raleigh "Pabst Blue Ribbon"?

High Life is the champagne of beers, not the beer of hipsters.
