cranked up!

took a definite few trial end error iterations before arriving at the right bottom bracket length, but we are good.

i have also decided on a silver headset. red would be too much i think.

Wow, that's wide. Must have some mega clearance chainstays. What's the rear end spacing?

130.

i've run into this exact problem before with WI cranks and 30T inner rings. the chainring bolts protrude out a bit towards the frame, and since the effective BCD is smaller than likely intended for use on this frame, the clearance there is not too good, so the only real option is to go wider on the BB.

I think a silver headset is the right call. That crankset looks really great on there.

Silver hubs, spokes and nips to black rims would follow that scheme. It's gonna look so good. Hard anodized rims would be pretty slick as well.

some parts trickled in. mocked up some wheels too to get a feel for the fit and angles of the frame. preliminary speaking, looks like the fit is going to be spot on.

now the waiting game for some shifty parts from the UK...

Funny. First thing I thought of when I saw that you had to go with a wider spindle was had to be the chainring bolts.

Same thing happened when I built up a Peg for a friend a few years back. The flared joins for the chain stays at the BB meant I had to go to a 118mm BB instead of the planned 113mm for a 34t even.

I love the VBC outer rings as I run a ton of WI SqT cranks, but I no longer use any of their inner rings. I run a lot of 9 speed as well so I just use older Salsa rings or any inner ring that allows for a bit of recess for the chainring bolts.

I like the stem. Kinda like the one I have from VO, except it has open face plate.
