inner shell diameter? i dont wanna sound like a newb, but this is the first time i have ever had to figure out spindle size.
can some shoe me a diagram or something? i have a micrometer... can i stick that right on there, and see what it says?? or is that not gonna be right?

Look at the casing of your old bearings it should say on there. Should be 19 or 22 but there is a chance it's 20.

You can do what you thinking.... the O.D. where the bearings sit is what you want.
Are thy sealed?

i dont have the old bearings. the micrometer almost dead. but it says 20mm. the O.D. of the shaft is the inside diameter of the bearings? i think, i hope...

euro bb in 19mm is actually 20? a guy on pinkbike is selling one, he said it says 19mm on the box, but its actually 20 when he measured it. is this true? can i trust the guy?

also,avoid splines. a lot of people like them,a lot of people dont like them. Im one that doesnt, and heres why Primos specifically are better than splines:
-pinch bolts
splines develop wobble, also pinch bolts aid a TON in service.
-warranty
Primo warrantys almost ANYTHING wrong with their cranks. Stripped a thread? warranty. crack? warranty. hit by a car? you know I havent tried....
