I am in need of replacing my crankset on my hybrid discovery 401 - although all that is left of the 401 now is the frame and the bb/crankset. it has a sealed bb 113/68 square taper. I am struggling to find a triple crankset on the web that would suit, as all of them seem to be hollowtech or some other bb type.
What I am unable to work out is if any of these whizzy new types are going to fit my frame.. or what I need to check to know. I have removed the existing bb hence knowing it's measurements. it is threaded only at one end, and all the pictures on the wiggle or wherever for different types of bb seem to have threads on both ends. I use the bike to cycle to work each day, about 20 miles round trip, it is a 24 speed bike currently, and i have some fairly nice shifters and thus need s 3 sprocket crankset. I also take one of the little ones in a hamax seat, or both of them in a trailer thingy.
Can anyone offer some assistance? An square taper bb seems to be about £10 so not a bank breaker, the newer hollowtech or whatever are a little more expensive and don't necessarily want to change it all up, but finding a crankset that is square taper, and for a hybrid rather than a mtb is a nightmare. along with not really being sure on what teething to go for..
