The Stronglight triple axle is marked "125" although the "123" axle might work on many frames.

A TA 374 axle would be a good bet also.

It is really wise to do gear charts before embarking on these efforts. You may want to do a half step plus granny and the 52-45 might be better with a three or four tooth gap.
