BB/crank/axle problem

Yo, just got a diable frame. i have the correct spanish BB. but my axle isnt compatable with it. im running stock eastern cranks atm. could anyone reccomend a crank axle that will fit with the two. If not, could you give me some idea as to what design im needing. cheers.

You need cranks with either a 3/4" (19mm) or a 22mm spindle. It's as simple as that.

Good choice. Those cranks are damn near indestructable.
