    why are you stressin' over the measurements, stock xt bb was fine, I'm not sure if I had to use spacers or not, what do you have on your 7point?

    If you're using a traditional square taper/octalink/ISIS BB you want to have 113mm spindle length.

    i was thinking about throwing on the hussefelt cranks that were on my IH. But for now, i just threw my saint cranks on there. they weigh a bit more, but look super sick. I'll have to get a picture tomorrow on its maiden voyage. But it does look super sick with the white fork and mango hubs
