Re: 1979 Patterson Anderson Avalanche

Does anybody know about the correct bottom bracket / spindle for this bike? For the Campagnolo cranks, I heard you’re supposed to use a Campagnolo spindle because it has the correct taper for the cranks and won’t mess them up when you tighten them up or crank on them. Anybody know what width Campy spindle you need to get, or the correct specs on that? I put Campy Stradahttps://s3.amazonaws.com/uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/230407/d8dd18a6-fec8-46eb-bc41-315cfd78cd925a5d00eabe.jpeg

180 mm cranks on my 1982 Patterson Pro Long, and I don’t want to mess them up.


No guts, no glory, go for it!

Re: 1979 Patterson Anderson Avalanche

Ok bro are you worried bout tapers or spindle lenght? Here is what i know since i have gone through the struggle too and now im a pro member i was only a 16 expert in aba and nbl. 1983.well any ways her goes.campagnolo ,according to phil wood changed tapers in the mid 90s. U my friend have the og campagnolo tapere they are not iso tapers my cranks are dated 1981 by the circle 1 so phil says the closest and their recomemdation is a jis taper . now 180mm on my 1980 avalache it  means that the crank arms are at the spot where rear bittom stay becomes the widest so if you changed from 175 to the almighty 180mm cranks with the same bb ur 180mm are to close to the rear stays .so u need at least 131mm .I have a 131 and app 5.5mm clearence .oh u want my recomendation yst 131 square taper american bb they r less than 50 bucks on ebay i bought one. also be sure to replace the 14mm crank fixing bolts with 15 mm crank fixing bolts sugino or campagnolo ive had both the sugino is chrome and the letters on the bolt stick out the campagnolo is painted and their letters are sunk in i got the campagnolos and polished them they are almost as shiny as chrome oh boulder bikes has track campagnolo chain ring bolts they are lettered with campagnolo brev which is italian for the word patent . I hope this helps make sure u do not get the 127s the 131 yst american bb comes in silver and black .hey uhm u could even replace the yst 17mm spindle and buy a philwood spindle which maybe better they say phil makes the best jis tapers. But phil makes a 130 which should also work '5 mm clearence instead of 5.5 I have been campagnoloing myself crazy ............ Its hard to undetstand 40 year old italian but it never stops..........
