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?

Will bottom bracket fit Bianchi Fremont frame?

Hey guys,

So I recently picked up a lightly used Bianchi Fremont frame to build up, and I was having a hard time finding info on this frame. I have an FSA platinum pro bottom bracket lying around that's a 68, previously used on a Masi Speciale Sprint frame. Any idea if it will fit the Bianchi? They both are track frames, but I really have no idea on the bottom bracket sizes, so any input is helpful.

68 is the width of the frame bottom bracket shell in millimeters, so just measure the frame and you'll have the answer. I'm 99.9% sure that it will be 68mm.

i think the bigger problem is whether or not it will fit the cranks you intend to use. i.e. is it too long or too short or is it jusssttttt right.

Sorry, failed to mention that I have the matching FSA crankset that I know will work.
