Default Fitting a Cooks E crank 175mm 110 to a 94 Yo Eddy

Hi Fat lovers,

Im hoping somebody has this combo. What is the optimum bottom bracket width for a clean chain line ?.

I have read posts of 113mm but no mention is made of the frame fitted.
Ideally I want a top end Titanium BB, was hoping to order in NOW in advance before a test mule fitting....so any recommendations would be welcome, preferably one that won't creak too much.



Thanks guys.

Tried out a 113mm but the chainline is not right. 108mm next.

For future reference for anybody looking to do the same combo, I found this http://weightweenies.starbike.com/articles.php?ID=13

Looks like a 107mm will do it. Don't know if I'm built for that narrow combo with my dodgy arthritic knees, so may reluctantly have to sell these stunning Cooks cranks on

Next an XTR M900 chainset.
