Guys I have bought a '95 S-Works FSR, and want to put either M900 cranks or White Industries on it. Does anyone know what length of BB I will need, or at least a guide to shortest/longest I could use?

Cheers
Tim

To continue the XTR m900 theme, I am running my crank of this model on a XTR BB which has a 110mm axle. This is gives about 3mm of clearance between the inside ends of the cranks and the swingarm of a 1997 Proflex Animal and I imagine will do pretty well on most full sussers. At a squeeze you could get away with a 107mm axle but its better to have more clearance in case the swingarm deviates slightly.

Cheers,

Adam

I may have the chance to get hold of a 122mm. Does that sound ok or too long???

Any advice appreciated.
