Modern cartridge BBs are (nearly?) all symmetrical, meaning that the length of each side is determined by the requirements of the crank. It may look weird, but it does keep the tread symmetrical.

If you want an asymmetrical spindle, you have to specify more than the length:

Harris Cyclery should have some asymmetrical spindles available.
