I saw the recent thread (2 messages) on campy spindles. However, I still have questions. I was recently given a box of old bike parts, among them several spindles in pretty good condition. Two of them are labeled 74 == SS == 120. I was under the impression that the SS or middle code indicated the length and a certain kind of offset when the spindle had different distances from the bearing race to the end for each side. (I came by this info via an old catalog from Loose Screws). The spindles don't measure 120 in length (unless I'm not supposed to measure end to end for this). So my questions are am I correct about the SS part, and therefore what does the 120 mean?

BTW, because these are 74's, I don't need them. If anyone wants/needs them, I'd be happy to trade them for nearly anything else. I have two, so I guess I could trade to one or two people.

Please include rhawks@lmi.net in your reply. Thanks.
