Default '94 Yo Eddy - Size of bottom bracket & head tube???

Hey Guys

I'm rebuliding a '94 Yo Eddy.

I'm quite sure that I do need a one inch fork! PLEASE correct me, if I'm wrong!

And next question: What size do I need for the bottom bracket?


That's a lot in advance!
cheers YoKris

If you're going old school dog-bone Cooks cranks than you'll be looking at a bb spindle of around 122 to 127mm. I have 'em on my 91 Yo and am using a 127mm bb spindle if that helps. If you're wanting to use a newer "low profile" crankset than certainly you'll want a shorter spindle, somewhere in the neighborhood of 113 to 118mm.
