Question for all you cranbrook experts, has anyone put a cartridge bottom bracket on? I want to put a three piece crank on and I tried a 68x103 bb with the truvativ adaptor but the spindle was a little short and the non-drive side crank hit the kickstand. My onyx has a 68x123 so I guess I could pull that apart but just eye balling it looks too long. Thanks for the help!
I had no idea these were called Cranbrook. I happened upon this site and thread completely by accident, but I'm glad I did! I just finished mine - it was a Panama Jack branded Cranbrook, I guess. It came from WalMart but I picked it up for $40 on craigslist. I used some square stock to make the bottom and rear vertical tubes.
Great thread! As a cranbrook owner, I'm feeling really inspired! I'm looking to add creme tires to mine. But would 2.35 fat franks fit the stock frame? Otherwise, felt quick bricks in the stock 2.125 width will have to do. What do you recommend?
