I plan on building a bike soon, but its been hard trying to find parts off Danscomp because the frame specs are missing on certain things such as, bottom bracket size, and crank size. The bottom bracket is measured in inches but, when shopping for them its measured in millimeters. Iv'e already had troubles with Danscomp and ordering parts that don't fit because of their lack of specs and information. My question is, how do I know what size is right for my frame when I want to buy parts?

theres a mid bottom bracket, spanish, and american. that's how they're measured, not by mm. then within that they can be 22mm, 19mm, or 24mm. The standard size is 19mm for cranks.

so if your bike is mid bb, and you have cranks with a 19mm spindle, you'd buy a 19mm mid bb kit. so you have to know what frame/crank combo

What spenlard said. The bottom bracket is NOT measured in inches, that's the BOTTOM BRACKET height. How high it is off the ground when the bike is built up.

Hey that's why you should order from Acebmx they have everything you need to build your bike juest give a call or email and they would tell everything. I always order from Acebmx and never had a problem for example i wanted some parts that danscomp didn't have anymore i found them on acebmx trust me you should try Acebmx sometimes they are reliable.

Dan's or albes. just call if you have questions. Danscomp actually seems to have the most detailed specs then anywhere else. 95% of frames have a mid bottom bracket, so I wouldn't really worry about that. Just get the right size for your crank spindle.

This.

Also, The Secret BMX is a very good and reputable website. I've made a couple orders from them and I've never had any issues with them.

I ordered my current frame from ace because it was out of stock everywhere else. It took the almost a month to get it and the guy that runs the place is a fucking dick and did not answer any question I had. If I would have waited for a better site to have them in stock again I would have gotten it two weeks earlier.
