Morning

Finally got all the bits to build my Pace (or at least, promised myself I'll stop buying more bits)

I just need to know the axle length for the BB - anyone know what size I need?

Cheers

Woody

I am using a 113mm with XTR M900 cranks on a RC200 F6.

I can only find UN73 in 73mm x 110 or 113, but the BB shell measures as 68mm, so presume I'm limited to UN54?

Will I really notice the difference in the axle width between a 113mm and 118? Providing the cranks don't hit the chainstays, of course ...

68 113 it is.

UN54 (the Xt version UN72 I believe or was it UN73 has been discontinued).

Posh stuff.... Woodman, Royce or if you are really lucky a Race Face taperlock. (Top tip visit Silverfish website and email all RF stockists.. there are a few still out there gathering dust, it worked for me :D )
