I am trying to put a set of CBR RSRs back in to action on the wife's Surly Karate Monkey (73mm BB shell). I can not remember what BB I ran w/ these and all of the shimano bbs I have the drive side spindle is not long enough.:madman: :madman:

HELP!

122.5mm-127.5mm

These worked with long spindles like most of the other cranks of that day.

What Do You Want?

If you're looking for lightweight try action tec or phil wood ti

Durability: Phil Wood steel

Cheap but good: Shimano UN-7x Ask at the LBS or most online places have them.

Phil and Action Tec both sell through their respective websites too

I also have a problem with cook's E series crankset. somehow drive side tapered hole is bigger than the other. (spindle will flash the crank surface before tighten enough)
I tried couple of different angle spindles with same result,,,,,
anyone know where I can order fully custom made Ti spindle?

sounds like you need a new crankarm, no? do they make shims for bugger'd (over) square taper holes?

It's obviously drive side crank arm has defective, I call to Jack(Cook Bros Racing) and he said thats my fault, because I didnt check a taperd hole when I got crankset, then he hang up the phone!!:madmax:

I don't think they have extra crank arm left over.

Only I can do is take a spindle to machine shop to extend taperd area and shorten the spindle a little.

I'm always late to these forums...
I have an E-crank and it split from the square hole in the direction of the crank arm. The spider is still holding it together, but it won't last. Check yours for cracks. A new spindle obviously won't help if you have a crack that opens up only when it's under stress.

I'm looking for a black drive side 175mm, if anyone's got one. I'm not picky on color either. The only reason I'm not throwing it out is because I just got new chainrings which won't fit on any other comparable crank I can think of. I'm open to suggestions.
Thanks.
