Suntour Superbe/Superbe Pro spindles changed lengths as the cranks changed from 144 BCD to the final 130 BCD in the 90's. Lengths were also specific to the different cranks. The 144 used 111 in the early days, then to 109 on the 130 BCD cranks. My Suntour Superbe Pro which is 130 BCD uses the 109mm.
