Taken off a Mercier bike with a Stronglight TS crankset. Getting the correct spindle length on a vintage build is crucial to how well your chainline is set up, which is the key to the smooth operation of the gears. This 122mm spindle is a standard size for Stronglight double cranks.

This spindle was fitted to a Peugeot PA 10 frame and has no branding, but actually weighs less than the Stronglight above. The crank fitted to it was a Stronglight 93. The drive side is 1.5mm longer than the Stronglight spindle fitted in a Mercier. According to Sutherland’s, a Stronglight 5 arm crankset should take a spindle of 121mm for a Peugeot bottom bracket. I measured 122mm for this one.
