As the title says, never used this model Deore LX chainset before so wondering what is required.
I've just stuck a random bb in for the picture.

Cheers

My set of those on my tourer are on a 113 mm bb. But, it really depends on how much chainstay clearance you need or want.

107 is the normal one, 113 if needed for fat bikes.

Or 110 if a bit of extra is needed on the none drive side (same chain line as the 107)

(edited: sorry, memory failed, corrected on the next page.)

Can't say from picture, if they are M560 or M563. M560 use wider BB, 113-118, depending on chainline. M563 are this 107-113.

I'm using 120? maybe that 122,5? on my commuter, as with 46-36-26 rings on M560 cranks, 118 BB was just too short so had to put there what else I had lying around.

Are you think M550, that's 122.5 for the 47.5 chainline.

M560 with the super low profile setup is 107/113 for 47.5/50 mm chainline.

No, the M560. Double checking at Sheldonbrown, it is supposed to be 113/118 for 47,5/50 chainlines. My case was weird, I knew I should use narrower BB, but after trying had to put there something like 120 (maybe even that 122,5, not sure), as chainrings were touching frame when using 118mm.

The 107/113 BB for 47,5/50 chainline should be the M563 chainset - compact BCD and one year newer.

Ah yes, the exage was the same that year, no real reason you couln't run 107/110 if you tried, but the lower groupset tended to go or more room at the rings/arms.

Pretty sure it's the same profile as the XTR, also 110, (and the Compact cranks).

Must see if I still have my 560 and try, though sure I got rid of it.

I think they kept the M560 as an option for 1994 too, but didn't put it out for show.

Just had a look and it's a M560 LX chainset so will a 110mm do the trick, it's going on a 91 Kona Lavadome.
