Scott Big Jon

A little help if you please.....

I just bought a Big Jon frame to turn into a bike. I've done this several times but this is my first fat bike. I KNOW the bottom bracket is 100mm but I have NO idea how that translates into crank spindle length.

Something I think I'm discovering is that nothing is "standard" i.e. hub spacing. I did download the build specs but some of those items aren't available any longer and even if they were I can get higher quality for less money.

You need the drop out size to figure out chain line. Most crank manufactures should have charts that explain all of it.
