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)

Perfect chainline for EAI Bareknuckle

Hi, This is my first post.

I am looking to get an EAI bareknuckle frame for my second fixed gear build. I was wondering if anyone knows of some bottom bracket, crank, and hub combinations that will yield a straight chainline for this bike. So far Ive looked into the sugino 75 with surly hubs which will supposedly work out to a standard 42mm line. Anyway, just looking for suggestions. Thanks

Any 120mm track hub in combination with a correctly mated bottom bracket and crank should yield a proper chainline. Sugino > Dura Ace > Phil > Campy > whatever. The bottom bracket to crank correctness is the most important element. If you get Sugino cranks, get a Sugino bottom bracket, etc, etc. If you keep all your components track specific on a track specific frame, it's really a non-issue.
