Bottom bracket

Hey guys;

The bottom bracket on my bike is rusted/stripped out/crappy. I'm in the market for another one but I'm a little confused about the sizing. I currently have a 68x121.5. Can i get a 122? 118? Whats going to be the noticeable difference if the length changes. Also, I'm in the market for a single speed crankset, any suggestions?

If you go 118...make sure you have the chainstay clearance. It will bring your crankset inward toward the frame. Not much...should be okay...but I couldn't say for sure w/o seeing it.

I think mine's broken too. How much will a new one cost me, assuming I will also have to replace the crank arms because of compatibility issues ?

P.S. I have a 2009 FUJI Nevada 1.0 MTB
