Crank and BB help

Hey guys

I have frame that i want to build up to fixed. It is an Italian frame and requires Italian threading BB.

Ive read some stuff on the net could there be a problem with the chain line if i use road cranks and BB?

how do i determine how how long BB spindle/axle i need.

I have a set of track wheels, will there be any problems with chainline?


Track wheels usually have a shorter over locknut distance, though this doesn’t affect chainline.

What road crank are you planning on using?

You’re track wheels will require a 42mm chainline (give or take 0.5mm, which won’t matter).

What you need to do is first decide on the cranks, and then you can find out what BB they’ll need for a given chainline.

still dont get your point.

The date you join the forum has a direct relationship with how much bicycle/ Fix experience you have.
