    If you build a bike from a new frame, how do you determine what axle you need for the correct chain line? :biggrin:

    you need to know the dimensions of the bottom bracket shell and the rear hub, it can then be worked out.

    I asked in the shop and they gave me the right one....

    I'm sure someone cleverer than me will answer this properly, but I have to say I took my frame, rear wheel and chainset to a bike shop and just asked them to fit a bottom bracket that made the chainline correct. I decided rather that than buy bits I might have to keep swapping to get it right - let them do that instead.
