Does anyone know what bottom bracket went on a 95 Proflex 955 frame? I did a search here but didn't find anything about the bottom bracket. I have a 68x113 that fits but the spindle is looking a little short. Any help would be appreciated.

Spindle Lenght Depends On Crank Arms

That 113 spindle is probably right for 1995 generation XT, LX, etc cranks.
Older non-low profile cranks will need something about 10mm longer.

What crank are you planning on using?

I have an old set of specialized "son of strongarm" cranks I plan on using. I put them on and took a long look, then got that feeling of the spindle not being long enough. Thought I would check here before I went any further with the build up. Thanks again Shayne.:thumbsup:

I'd Guess That 113mm Is About Right

For those Specialized cranks.
Give it a try and see what happens. I can't imagine they'd take anything longer than a 118mm if the 113mm is too short.
