Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

new crank/ bottom bracket, harder than i think?

okay soooo here's the deal: i have a mercier kilo tt, boring generic crank/bb, and i'm feeling special, so i want to buy a Sugino XD crankset, and a new bottom bracket while i'm at it

bensbike on ebay says "Use with a 107mm square taper bottombracket - available separately for $19.99"

do i need to worry about my rear hub and cog now? how can i check to see if this would make for a remotely straight chainline

the 107 bb is probably assuming a 42mm rear chainline. find out what your rear chainline is ( and adjust accordingly.
