    eighthinch crankset BB?

    What the hell is the right length BB for this crankset? On the cyclingcloseouts site, the black set is listed as 103 and the other colors are listed at 107-110. I e-mailed them and they sent a response saying it was 107 to run the ring on the outside but have found info in threads (here and on other sites) claiming that 103 will do it.

    I want to pick up a set for a bike my wife is almost finished building. Can someone who has a set clarify this?

    ^^I'm guessing Scrod would want to know if you run the chainring on the inside or the outside of the spider.
