    I'm wanting to install a Sugino VP, double 110 bolt pattern, crankset I have and I don't know the
    bottom bracket size to use. I have Shimano tapered 110, 113, and 118.

    The ring sizes I'm going to try are 44/34 or 50/34 and a 12/27 cassette. Can I use a std cage rear
    derailleur? Will a road front derailleur work?

    I'm looking to setup a bicycle for several rides that are longer than 200k and have some steep
    sections. I prefer not using a triple crankset. I have also used a 52/39 with a 13/32 (12/27 minus
    12 plus 32 cog) but this required a long cage derailleur.

    I have most of the parts. If it works as I want it to, I'll be shopping for a 46x110 ring.

  2. I use a 34x48 in the front and a 12/25 in the rear. It works really well! I can't believe 110bcd
    doubles aren't popular. I love not having to use a triple up front yet having a low gear for my long
    hilly rides (as well as being able to have easy rest days up in hilly territory). Personally I would
    go bigger than 44 or even 46. Don't forget about all the downhills you get after those climbs. The
    48 is perfect for me when I'm by myself. It gets hard on fast group rides when I'm tired. My front
    derailleur is a record 10 speed. The rear is a long cage daytona. I can't say from experience but I
    don't think you would need the long cage unless you went 34x50 up front. Can't help you on the bb
    length, but having that variety you do on hand I'm sure you could find out in about a half hour.
    (btw, if you decide you don't want the sugino, let me know)

    Paul: I'm running a Sugino GT double. Takes a 120mm BB spindle on a road bike. I also have used
    Sugino AT's in double mode that take the same width. For the front derailleur, you could use a
    standard-drive unit such as a early 90's bottom-pull XT or DX.

    My favorite combination is 50/36 and a 13-28 in the back. For this, you'd be better off with a road
    front derailleur.

    I'm pretty sure Dave's GT and AT take a different length than Paul's
    VP. The VP is one of Sugino's LP or SLP (Low Profile or Super Low Profile) cranks.

    After you mount the crank, consider measuring and adding it to Sheldon's excellent database at

    Correct. The AT (as a double) uses a 3-S spindle (37.5mm) and the VP when double uses a 3-L (30.5)

    Based upon the group and private messages I received, I think I got the bb length nailed on the
    first crack.

    Whatever a 3L spindle is, I found out it was 116 mm long. I had a Shimano 91 bb in a 113. I put a 1
    mm space on the right side of the bb. When I put the cranks on and changed the derailleur height, I
    didn't have to change the stops at all. My best guess for 'the' bb would be a 115. What had been in
    was Record crankset and bb.

    The Record front derailleur shifted the non ramped 34/44 rings much smoother than I expected it
    would. I'm going to test drive the beast on tomorrows training ride. I put an 11/23 cassette on.
