Langster Bottom Bracket and Crankset
I am starting a virgin build on a Langster Steel and I want to get the chainline right. Are there any known good configurations of bottom-bracket and cranks?
What spindle length you'll need depends on which crankset you plan on using.
For example, Sugino RD calls for a 103mm JIS square taper, Sugino 75 calls for a 109mm ISO square taper, IRD Definant calls for a 110mm JIS square taper, etc, etc, etc.
Dont all those give you a 45 mm chainline? Though most track hubs for 120mm spacing gives you 42-43mm? I dont think its a big problem tho

Thanks all. My current plan is to go with ...
- Sugino Messenger crankset
- Sugino 68 x 103mm Standard JIS square taper BB
So, I was just about to pull the trigger on a Sugino Messenger crankset and their CBB-103 bottom bracket but I thought I would check out the Sugino home page first for a final spec-check and they seem to say that this will give a 45mm chainline! What gives? Here are the specs from their page ... can anyone explain? Thanks!
