    http://www.cyclingcloseouts.com/Prod...set_White.aspx

    i have a size54 frame and im 5'9

    would you guys recomend a 165 or a 170 for length?

    my main question is finding a good bracket to fit in my frame and the 8inch crankset
    do you guys think this would work? (i have english threading 68)

    Scrod uses both Eighth Inch cog and crankset and he's a mechanic, he'll be able to answer your questions.

    Lack of preparation on your part does not constitute an emergency on [Scrod's] part.




    You could always send him a PM.

    Here I am! Apologies, as I was sleeping. I do that occasionally.

    I love my EighthInch chainring, cog & lockring and for the money, I don't think they can be beat. I just picked up a full crankset for a bike my wife is building and I'm impressed by the overall quality. I say go for it. 165s all day long.

    That UN54 BB won't last forever but will be fine. Get a 107mm.

    Hope that helps!
