That's precisely the one I've ordered, so sounds like it's a good choice. I'll report back on the actual dims.

Re: Bottom Bracket Question

If your knees are getting old and/or don't always work properly (my right is ruined with a snapped ACL) then go with the 113 as the additional 3mm will remove a minor amount of the work load on the interior of your knee joint. Thanks for the insight, but too late - I already ordered the 110! :( I f...

Re: '94 A2E - Original Bottom Bracket Size

If we believe BikePedia.com, it looks like the early ('94 - '96) steel bikes are 68 x 110 and the later ('97/8) AL bikes are 73 x 113.

I just measured my (powder-coated) frame and it comes in at 69.1mm, so I'd say that verifies the "68" value.

Re: '94 A2E - Original Bottom Bracket Size

73 mm shell but spindle length depend on crankset , I use 110 on my Cuda. If you know what your spindle length is right now check how much clearance you have between the crank arms to chainstay and the clearance between the chainring and chainstay. You can use that space to get a idea of what BB yo...

Re: Any Cudaheads running a 1x9 setup?

Oh okay, that's a simple fix, just swap out it out for a new sealed bearing bottom bracket, like a Shimano UN-53 (or -54 or -55) with a 68/73 shell with widths up to 118... you can't go wrong! Jenson USA sells them for $10.00 with a price match on any other site's pricing but 10 bucks is pretty har...

Re: Bottom Bracket Question

Reviving this thread, as it looks like I need to replace my BB. Trying to decide between a 68x110 vs. 113. The one wild card is my crankset which is a '95 Shimano compact. I'm wondering if that sets the rings on a slightly different plane vs. the original, and thus it might influence the 110 vs. 113...

'94 A2E - Original Bottom Bracket Size

I thought I had my '94 A2E restoration mostly done, but now I'm running into a couple snags. As it stands right now, I can only get the front der to shift onto two rings. At first, it wouldn't reach the big ring, so I tightened up the cable a bit and now it only reaches the middle and big (but not t...

Thanks. I almost sold the AMP fork and just put a solid one up front, but I've owned the AMP fork for 20 years now - I've grown sorta attached to it.
