I was just reading a post from Richard about how he has never built a bike without an 80mm BB drop. That was the only measurement on his jig that didn't move.

Let me measure it and send you a PM. I think if I remember correctly, it was a little small for me. Worked for a CX race but not a long ride. I'll report back.

What size are you looking for? I have a Sycip CX bike with eccentric BB but all the bits needed to run geared. I ride a 56cm road frame personally and it fits well. PM me for more info.
