Best Spindle & BB for Sugino 175 Cranks ?
« on: December 07, 2017, 12:25 PM »
Hi ,

I'm looking for a Spindle & BB for a set of Sugino 175 Cranks that will be ridden.

 I hear a lot of the square spindle kids on eBay don't tighten properly as the arms wont sot 100% correctly & that  the crank arms can come loose (something which happened to me) on a set of Fuji Cranks the other year ...

Would anybody know which ones work (from experience of riding these) I understand Sugino 400 BB's & Spindles work but can be pricey.

Thanks chaps.

a lot of the squre taper bb kits are road bike specific, they do fit bmx but the taper will be short as road bike cranks tend to be thinner at the boss, try to find a bmx specific one which should have a longer taper

just about all os ally cranks with square tapers  will always work loose , the crank boss will deform over time, especially if you weigh more than your average 6 year old , hence tha reason for big kids ally cranks being made a lot fatter, using pinch bolts etc , once the wobble starts , the cranks are starting to deform, you can get more life out of them by using shims on the taper, but this will not stop the deformation ,  or if you can,  try to find a  bb with a longer taper
