Fixed Gear Chainline / BB Spindle Length
I am hoping to use an older Dura-Ace Crankset for a fixed gear set-up (on a track bike.)
Budget fix for the first little and will upgrade parts as I have $.
Since the track hub and cog in the back will give a 42mm chainline, I will most likely need to run the chainring on the inside (of the double crank.)
I believe the spindle length for this crank set is a 109 for a 43mm chainline (on a road bike set-up.)
does anyone know where this would put the chainline of the inner chainring and the outer chainring? (assuming that the 43 is the center of the two double chainrings?)
If I wanted to run on the outer chainring, could i just get a smaller spindle length BB (107, 105?)
Will I run into problems with putting this crankset on a smaller BB?
I know the correct answer is to go to my LBS but I would just as soon build this on my own and learn some lessons...
How old dura ace?
