The real pain in the ass was getting the 120 SSP hubs respaced to 110 - I had to get DuraAce 10mm 110 axles special ordered by someone who spoke Japanese from the Shimano Factory in Japan. Thanks to Yellow Jersey, Jay, Marcus at Yojimbo's Garage, Sasha E., Kyle, Ranier, Oliver, John, and most of all, the fine soldiers at Montano Velo for helping me bring it all together.
My baby. Like sleeping on a bed of titties.

Radical frame you got there. Never saw one before. Nice choice with the Superbe components also. I'm trying to get a Superbe groupo goin. Just need some hubs and crank arms but they can be hard to come by. Ride fast and maybe I'll see you around.

so i got a set of suntour

so i got a set of suntour superbe pro cranks and i have no idea what spindle length is recomended for those, can you clue me in? thanks.

business cycles has this

business cycles has this info on their website. Really what you should do is get a suntour superbe pro bottom bracket, because even other JIS track bottom brackets differ slightly (i.e. my shimano BB that came with the frame didn't fit).


How did you get the axles from Shimano? I had the same problem but I just had the axles machined and respaced the rear myself with some spare parts at the bike shop I work at.

Try yellow jersey.
