Hi,

I'm rebuilding my 98 Zaskar with a set of M950 XTR cranks

I understand the BB shell is 73mm, but am unsure what length i need?

can anyone help?

I took a BB off a Zaskar and it had XTR M900 cranks
The axle length was 107mm to my surprise!

You need to use a BB length from 112mm to 116mm with those cranks.

112.5mm, we tend to only use the longer 116 on Full suspension where we need to clear the swing arm

I had a 73/112.5 M950 on my IF Hardtail.
