    Is Phil Wood the only 100 mm S/T BB?

    I have a cool set of forged Specialized square taper crank arms that 4x64mm only. With a 28T ring, they would make a great SS crank, but by the time I spend $250+ on the Phil, I'm into other options. I've searched, but came up empty. Anything I'm missing?

    That's what I am running in my Pugs. It's a nice BB and costs $162 on the Phil Wood site.

    I don't know of any other square taper bb at 100mm. I too have the Phil Wood, and like Vik I only paid about $150 for it.

    I thought the cups add another $60 or so to it? What cups are you using?

    Choppers USA has one for under $30. Can't vouch.

    I'm pretty sure the Choppers has a 165mm long spindle. This would rule out all but a few early generation cranks that were made for 120mm+ spindles. There are probably some of those on E Bay from time to time.

    Race Face made a 100mm square taper crank but I've only been able to find one and I have been looking. It has the advantage of not needing unique mounting tools, or additional mounting rings, which as has been pointed out adds $50 to $100 to the price of the Phil BB.

    A bit off topic, but is anyone successfully using White Industries crank arms?

    Plus at least another $15.00 for the mounting wrench. They are very nice bottom brackets and if you want to go square taper they are the only practical solution.

    Yes, barely with a 34t. Tightest clearance on a pug is the non drive side with the bend in the chainstay.

    I always feel the need to jump in and promote the Phil square taper, it isn't cheap.... But
    its value is incomparable.
