What BB for Softride?

I have a '94 Softride Powercurve which I'm planning on running Shimano Tricolour 600 cranks with. Anyone know what size BB I'll need?

The crankset determines the correct bottom bracket. 6400 Tricolor used a 113mm square taper BB with English-threaded frames, 115mm with Italian frames.

Should be a 68mm English BB. Length will depend on your choice of crank.

Other than the frame and beam hardware, SoftRides donít use a whole lot of proprietary parts or unusual sizes; certainly not as Ďbadí as 90-00ís Cannondale.

Does this mean your Pong crank is in need of a home?

(Doing a 2.8 / 3.0 Cannondale build)

Yes, the Pong cranks will be looking for a good home.
