    (sigh) LMGTFY...

    On the very first page of results, we find the manufacturer's website, where we find this crankset. As you can see, the crankset comes in three different versions: JIS square taper, ISIS splined taper, I2T Power Drive splined taper (I have no idea what that is).

    But, since you haven't posted a photo of your actual crankset, with the dustcaps off, we have absolutely no idea which of the three BB versions your crank uses. Seems to me that's the sort of thing you should have investigated before you bought the crank.

    As for BB spindle length, single-ring seems to be somewhere between 106mm and 112mm. 108 and 110 are most common. But the manufacturer has a downloadable catalog; why don't you download the catalog, read it and see if they tell you the recommended length? They also have an email address; why not mail them and ask?

    And About the Arbitrary Capitalization Thing: What are you - German?

    Posted By: 0S0Does size matter here? dont i need to know the size of the Frame Bottom Bracket Hole????

    Yes, you do. You haven't told us anything at all about the frame, so we don't know whether it has an English-thread bottom bracket or not (it probably does). That's the "68" part, the width of the bottom bracket tube.

    Think about your project, write down everything you already know (or already own, manufacturers/models/sizes included), and write down everything you think you need to know. Don't take anything for granted; don't assume you know something that you don't, and don't assume we know anything about your project at all. We haven't seen or touched it; we don't know nothin'.

    If you ask sloppy questions, you get sloppy answers. You get better answers when you ask better questions.

    1) I doubt that azuki is a 54 based on the picture you have in your profile. 2) 54 is the frame size and has nothing to do with the bottom bracket. 3) Your bike probably takes an english bottom bracket 4) The spindle length depends on the crank model 5) 110.5 (probably jis) english bottom bracket 6) Written communication is important when trying to communicate through writing

    eaglerock, i was about to say how unusually harsh (and hilarious) your comment was, but then:

    Yes, being able to communicate effectively with the written word is pointless.

    High School has failed you.
  1.  
    If you write carefully, we'll understand what you're asking better. If you capitalize randomly, it gives false information. If you don't give enough information, we're operating on a deficit.

    Please show us the part of the crank that connects to the BB.

    If you don't have tools to take off the old one, how are you going to get it off? May I suggest getting a crank puller? No other tool does what it does. If, under those dust caps, there's a square hole, the tool is about $15.

    That's almost certainly what's under there.

    Now, are you sure you need to replace your BB? Is it grinding or something?
