Thanks all.

Yes, I was a bit confused. Everything I had read seemed to suggest that cranks were specific to the type of bottom bracket.

I have ridden for years (decades actually), but just in the past three or so have become more interested in working on my own bike, other than routine maintenance. This will be my first "build." I was willing to pay a LBS mechanic good money ($200) for his time to walk me through the process, but none seem too willing. I would have about third of the work done before even needing their assistance.

Anyway, thanks for the advice.
