    Paul hub / ENO crank owners help!!!!

    I'm struggling with this spindle length thing. I have a Paul hub w/ a ACS (switching to ENO later) fw. What size BB does everyone have with their ENO cranks? How close do I really have to get with my chainline? Help me get my newly polished ENO's on.

    Hey bretbusby:

    I'm running a Paul WORD disc hub, ENO freewheel and ENO cranks on one of my bikes, and have found that a 118mm BB makes for a nice line. Specifically I'm using an IRD Quad QB-75 which can be had for around $38.00. So far the BB has been pretty solid and I've heard good things about them. I guess your other option is an adjustable Phil Wood?

    I got the IRD from:

    http://store.interlocracing.com/qbqubobr.html

    They have a minimum order or like $40-45 though so you have to buy a waterbottle/sticker/whatever.

    Keep in mind that the ACS f/w may produce a slightly different line until you get that ENO.

    You want to get your chainline close enough so that it at least looks straight by eye.

    On my Cross Check I used a 118mm along with a 2mm bottom bracket spacer for a perfect chainline with my Paul's hub/ENO crank combo.

    I suggest e-mailing White Industries directly.

    WI didn't really help when I got my cranks as they spec'ed the wrong spindle length 113mm for my frame. I had purchased a PW BB and they swapped the 113mm BB with 119mm (I think...). Made me a PW fan for life.
    I guarantee I will never, ever be accused of bringing sexy back...

    I've heard someone refer to their frame when talking about BB spindle lengths before: Are there such things as frames whose BB tubes *aren't* centered with respect to the chainstays (this being the only case where the frame would have anything to do with your choice of spindle length)?

    Bump? You just had two people confirm a spindle length of 118mm, what you don't trust us?

    My Paul WORD hub/ACS freewheel combo was fine with the PW 113 BB.

    118 here. ENO cranks, ENO freewheel, Paul hubs and a Spot frame. Not sure I have it perfect though, Moe's 119 might be better.

    I just finished building a Rig frame w/ a Paul WORD hub, ENO crank and freewheel. I ended up w/ a 122.5 mm Shimano BB. This gave me 10 mm of crank clearance @ the chainstays (total L&R) and a suitable chainline.
