Gunnar question for A. Muzi at Yellow Jersey or others with Surgio crank



I am ordering a Gunnar Rodie and plan to use a Surgio XD600 crank with
a ten speed cassette. My goal is to have a chainline that centers the
middle ring on the rear cassette. What length BB should I use?

My 9-speed setup with an XD crank is just about perfectly centered with
a 113 BB. You could also use a 115, but I think 113 is the standard
recommendation, and I just checked on my bike, and it looks perfect.

If you're going with a Surgio crank, I'd suggest the Surgio Mendez, with the
"Brazil" 66mm BCD.

OH! You meant a SUGINO crank....I used a 113 with my Sugino XD on an old
Peugeot, and that worked great.

113-118 JIS is my guess. I'd try a Shimano UN5? x 113. I don't know
if the Shimano 115 is still easy to buy.
