Shimano 600 Arabesque Chainline
I'm trying to figure out what size spindle I need for these cranks. With the stock 117 mm BB, I get a 48 mm chainline measurement for the cranks, and my wheel gives me the standard 42.5 mm chainline with a Shimano freewheel. I know it seems obvious that With these measurements, I need an 111.5 mm BB, but that's a rather odd size. I plan on getting a fixed cog for the other side of my hub, will this alter the chainline any? 111.5 is a stupid spindle length also. Should I go with a 110.5 from Benscyle, or go longer with a 113?
