    surly 1x1 profile cranks spindle question

    Hey people

    attempting to run profiles on my 1x1 and wanted to know what spindle length currently running a 7"+ monster and it looks and rides ridiculous. Only other size i can seem to find is a 6" and with a little bit of backyard maths I think it might work, just wanted some conformation before going a head with the purchase. I have seen plently of pictures on the net of people running this combination.

    Cheers

    The short will work fine. You can always cut down the long one a touch on each side or run a ton of spacers.

    hey thanks for the reply, currently running the really long spindle with a tonne of spacers on the left side crank sits a good inch out from BB with way to much clearance on the rear stay.

    Just use a hack saw (chop saw if possible) and lop off a half inch on each side. The threads go pretty deep if I remember right.
