MTB Standard Information

Hi, new here.

I have recently started trying to design myself a mtb frame.

Wondering if anyone has some pointers on where to find standard part info. Iím thinking of parts like headset, BBs, Cranks, hubs etc. At this stage Iím trying to gather information

The manufacturers have limited info on their sites which I can use to piece together, but wondered if there is an easier way?

Apologies if this is a silly question. It could be the first of many!

You can find the SRAM info here https://www.servicearchive.sram.com/service
You'll have to look under the SRAM box and click to find a manual for MTB components. On the next page, scroll down the left side menu and select "frame fit specifications" to get the PDF documents.

For Shimano stuff, this is the most recent document I have https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B-...y1aVmhHOGhjQnM

Most of the things you mentioned are fairly standardized and you won't need measurements of the actual components for headsets, bottom brackets and hubs. The one that you really need is cranksets to determine crankarm and chainring clearance. Especially with MTB frames, clearance is really tight between the tire/chainstay/chainring(s). You also have to make sure the end of the crankarm is not going to hit the chainstay.
