    Found a few spindles, CK, McMahann, Actiontec

    Found a few spindles, CK, McMahann, Actiontec-20171108_114426.jpg

    The ones on the left are CK SS ones. The one with the raised center is solid. I'm pretty sure only a couple of these were made.

    McMahann Ty's on right.

    Spacer I made for press on sleeve for my bikes.

    Broken Actiontec from 87? I broke 2 of those. I also have an early broken MRC too. After consulting with CK and new design change shown here. Never had an issue with the MRC spindles after that.

    Cool!
    Never broke a B.B. spindle - but I weighed only 126lbs back then.
    Glad you helped improve the design considering the increase in Earth’s gravitational pull and thus my apparent weight.

    Ken-
    Which of those spindles would have been used on your Y file bikes?
    I'll take one if you got it.

    For the most part Y bikes used threaded BB of your choice.
    If you got a press in BB on a any bike other than a Genesis, it used 125mm spindles. Special order ones used the MRC 125mm ones pictured on right. Genesis used 119mm ones. These worked well for cranks of the period for the most part.
