    Hi All,

    I have just acquired a Stronglight Escape (double) chainset; can anyone please tell me what size bottom bracket it will need ? 113mm ?

    Thank you very much !

    Spa Cycles reckon a 107 mm. Linky

    Spa often seem to disagree with Stronglight on BB length.

    Escape doesn't feature on Stronglight's site any more but fortunately Sheldon has a copy of an old table towards the bottom of this page.

    Much as I like Spa, they are not infallible, they delivered a wrong chain ring to me this week and they are definitely wrong on the BB length for the Impact triple (unless you are using it on a Tandem), so I would go with 113 mm

    @ Porkypete.

    The OP was asking about a double, not a triple.

    I was using the Impact triple as another example of Spa can getting it wrong.

    The table I linked to clearly shows 113mm for a double.

    I would have said 122 mm had the OP asked about a triple.
