BB for Schwinn Voyageur Conversion
Hey guys. Boy I hope I don't get flamed on this one, but I have been searching around all day for this answer. I've done a few single speed conversions, but never replaced a bottom bracket before. I have a 1981 Schwinn Voyageur frame that I'd like to convert to a fixed gear.
I plan to use these cranks: Pista Track Crankset
They state a 103mm bottom bracket will make a 42mm chain line, and a 107mm will make a 44mm chain line. I think the chain stays on the voyager are narrow enough to use the 103mm, but I am not totally sure.
Any experience with this type of frame, or suggestions?
