Always head to BLB and ask in there. Doubt they'll have specific parts for cottered cranks though as they're so old and nevery used any more. Better bet would be to buy a new (or nos) bottom bracket and crankset. BLB will have some classic ones.

custom built Santa Cruz Chameleon, size small

don't like plugging ebay auctions, but I would rather this went to someone off here than to a complete random.
Selling it ridiculously cheaply (on at £399) so will hopefully be of interest to someone.

Bike is located in Winchester but, if need be, I can take it on the train anywhere up to an hour or so away (London/Oxford etc) at no extra charge for fukers.

Full spec and more pics in the listing:

I'm looking for a road/touring bike that I can take on a decent run every now and then. I'm looking at the current sale racks and thinking of something like the following, any suggestions?
