    Reasonably light bb w/ 127.5-132.5mm spindle ?

    I've been running old school 74/110 cranks on a couple bikes for awhile now. One set has a White Industries Limbo Spider, and the other set has a Mtn Tamer Triple. I'm sure most folks here know, but if not, they are both adapters to allow one to run very small rings. My rings on both cranksets are 18/28/46. I want to run the same setup on a different bike but it's my 'weight weenie' ride so I'd like to find a bb with an extra long spindle that is not a boat anchor. Does anyone know offhand of a good square taper bb with a 127.5mm (or longer) spindle that is reasonably light ?

    Thanks for any suggestions.

    Phil Wood is about the only choice in a light square taper these days, especially for long spindles
