Ok it's bottom bracket time, I have a 1994 zaskar running 9 speed xt drive chain with an m460 chainset with 175 arms.

Can someone tell me what width axle I will need?

I don't have a b/b that fits , so I can't drop one in to test.

This is the one bit of the bike I need major help with as I'm stuck bigtime now .

I have looked at sheldons list but I can't figure any of it out

Cheers

Anthony

So 113x measure your frame bb area which is probably 73mm I guess

Hope that helps

Xt 737 9 speed but only running 2 rings on the front

Just found a b/b at my mates house a pretty good un73 but its a 68 shell and 115 width cranks fit a treat with about an inch away from the stays :)

Ill list the b/b for a swap to get the exact size I need
