    83mm Wednesday BB?

    Anybody reduce the BB on their Wednesday to 83mm?

    Cost? Complexity? Crank options?

    Is there enough BB shell exposed to shave it down that much?

    I thought of doing that with my Pugsley. But ended up going with a square taper set up. WI road cranks. Got the q factor down to 183mm.

    Not sure, but it looks close on the DS.

    Iíve read about this Mod on the Pugs and was wondering if itís doable on a Wed.

    Then I thought maybe you could take more off on the NDS to make up the difference.

    You probably could. And then use spacers to even out the cranks as much as possible.

    But in reality, it was easier to get ST cranks and leave the BB shell alone.
