-oOo- ok, i just mounted a pair of superbe pro cranks (the first version, i think, with 144mm bcd) on a campy double bb.. i believe the spindle was 113mm.. it clears the driveside chainstay by about 3-4mm... had i used the correct 108mm spindle as spec'd, it seems like the cranks would've been awfully close !

(113-108)/2 =2.5mm, and you had 3-4mm to play with.

So, what's wrong with close? <smile> (Unless you are knock-kneed).

I had 3-4 mm between a 45 Campy NR ring and the chainstay. That gap becasme vast when I swapped the 45t for a 42t after too many years. (My pockets are too shallow to fit a minimum-size 41t.)
