How did you end up with so many 86 BCD cranks sets?! Got loose chainrings in your stash too?

This would be killer on my TdF, but probably not period correct.

The two SR APEX were on a pair of low end bikes, replacements. I kept them.
This I found yesterday, when I bought some used parts.
Overstock of parts and I need some extra cash.
I will look for loose chainrings.

+ 1.

The OP is looking to corner the market on 86 bcd cranks; this one has nice half step gearing too. The first gen Stronglight 99 is likely period correct but this looks to be the 2d gen. I like the SR 86 bcd crank you picked up; it's a fine crank for an older American bike like a vintage Trek.

What length spindle is needed? I'd like to use this on my Motobecane Grand Record but the existing (and original) bottom bracket might not be long enough.

I don't have my Sutherland's at hand, but it calls for a 125-126 mm spindle for a stronglight triple and 121 for a double. There are a lot of variables here and these can be fudged. Stronglight axles can be found in eBay but the longer ones tend to be tougher to find.

The cool thing is that this can easily be run as a double with different chainring bolts to give you a C&V compact crank. The OP's crank could be run as a 47/32 for example.

Edit: I went into the deep freeze (my garage) to find my trusty Sutherlands. It is 125-126 for a 99 triple and 121 for a double. Those numbers worked when I installed a 99 triple on my Peugeot PR 10.

I know it’s not even the same brand, but my SR Super Custom is set up as a compact double and I used a 113 UN-72 BB. For a triple, try a 115 or 117? Shimano BB are dirt cheap.

Barrett's MBK is not likely to be british threaded; he'll have to use a velo orange, IRD, or Phil Wood unit if he has a swiss or french BB. There are cup and cone french threaded BBs on Amazon, https://www.amazon.com/Bottom-Bracke.../dp/B003ZKOOMC

Thanks for the technical data. I actually already have a 42t and 28t Stronglight 86bcd chainring set in my possession. My guess is that a 52, 42 & 28 chaining set will probably clear the chainstays with the standard Stronglight 118.5mm bottom bracket. If that doesn't work, the 52 & 36 chainring combination might get installed.

Duh, shoulda knowed that.

And yes, longer Stronglight spindles are hard to come by.

If you were brave, you could buy a 28t and go ultra compact with 47/28. Put a nice 12-21 7s FW on and you’d have some tight gearing.

Hopefully I have a long enough spindle already installed. The bike was originally fitted with a TA Professional and the installed spindle length should be 118.5mm

For a TA spindle, you'll want the one marked "374" for a triple crank:

At the risk of thread-crapping, that smallest ring looks more like a 36T than a 32T...

True, and even better!

I've have a 86bcd Stronglight double and I also have three Stronglight 86bcd chainrings: 52, 42 and a 28. I've had these for a while.

I will now will also have a 52, 47 and a 36, once the triple crankset arrives. I'll recombine the chainrings to build a 52, 42 & 28 triple. I'll also be able to combine the 47 & 36 for a interesting double.

I received the very clean crankset from Marius on Wednesday. The crankset is in very good condition and arrived without delay.

I changed the chainring combination to 52, 42 & 28. It installed on the original 118.5mm bottom bracket with the correct clearance from the chainstay and the chain line looks very good.

thank you!

I'm looking to change my Stronglight 99 double (47-30) to a triple (47-44-30). Anybody have a clue what length spindle I'd need on a modern Shimano UN55 unit?
