    What is the shortest BB I can Get

    I'm trying to rebuild a couple year old Cannondale and would like to put a older Deore crank that fits a square taper BB on it, I know buy a different crank "NO" this older crank is in perfectly new condition and is about the same year as the bike. The prob is I have tried a 110mm and it seems like its about 1/4 inch too long for the front dr to reach.
    Any ideas of what the shortest square taper BB is in a 68 shell.
    I believe there are people who disagree with my beliefs. I don't believe they are wrong. I know they are.

    bikeman has the FSA Ultimax CrMo in a 68x103. That would bring the chainline in ~3.5mm...

    Thanks for your input. I was thinking the smallest size was somewhere around 105 or so, thanks again.
