Depends on the crank you're planning to use mate, not the frame..........

Not quite true Fenton. BBs come in different sizes to suit 68mm or 72mm BB housings as well as different axle lengths to suit different cranksets. :wink:

68mm or 73mm BB shell sizes.
I think the Elite takes a 68mm shell.
BB spindle lengths can be found here:

It does. At least my one did.

Now all you need to do is chose a crank to go on it and then you can work out which axle length you need. :wink:
