    BB axlelength to Salsa Caballero?

    Yes, that is my only question!

    I now have a 68-113 but the chain line is not to satisfaction which leads to ghost shifting in the cranks, especially whan I run low gears (on the cassette).

    Salsa homepage only say the BB should be a 68 mm, nothing about the length of teh axle!

    My cranks are Spezialized Strongarm II.

    BB Axel Length depends on crank not frame

    I don't know what length Specialized recommends for that crank but there are usually 2 sizes given. 1 for 47mm chainline and 1 for 50mm chainline. 113mm is a pretty common size for cranks of that age. You could try a 115mm or 118mm if you have one handy. Otherwise I'd contact Specialized and see what they recommend.
