Crankset spindle length problems!

Hi guys!

Recently I started building up my Cinelli Mash Histogram.
I understand that spindle length of the BB is specific to the crankset/chainset used, and not the frame.

However, when planning to purchase the Truvativ Touro Track 1.1 Power Spline Chainset
https://www.chainreactioncycles.com/M...ModelID=105876
from CRC, I realized that the recommended BB spindle length was not included anywhere. Multiple searches online came up empty.

The BB I think is compatible is the Truvativ Powerspline BB
https://www.chainreactioncycles.com/M...?ModelID=21496

I only have to find the spindle length to complete my build!

Do help guys! Many thanks..

I would consider a different crank set, Those came stock on my kilo and I would not reccomend them. However I have a stock BB from those cranks in my garage if you want it its yours.

Why not? Please enlighten me. They seem cheap, but they give no bang for your buck? The stock BB, what is the spindle length? I'v been ploughing through the internet to find an answer!):

It's a cheapo crank. Why spend all that money on a nice frame and throw marginal parts on it?

Aside from some aesthetic differences, the Truvativ Touro is the same as the Sram S100 - which uses a 113mm Powerspline BB. If you want further confirmation, maybe you should contact the shop selling them and ask.
