I think for a 68mm shell bottom bracket there needs to be two spacers on the drive side and just one on the non-drive side. For a 73mm shell there just needs to be one either side.

I'm not 100% sure, but I don't think you'll need a Raceface specific spacer and you could use a Shimano one. They should all have the same internal diameter.

yes between sheel and cup
the fit quite snugly on the cup
they go over the threads
will link in a sec

red
he does silver and gold too
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=380276585581&var=650008194254&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT

if your desperate
file down a plastic cassette spacer (file off the teeth)(or a metal one!)

if you do go for the red, i could be interested in going halves if you like?

Same seller as my link above - little cheaper if you steer clear of eBay :wink:

I am waiting for mine to arrive (only ordered yesterday – posted today). Communication from the seller has been very good and they have been very accommodating with my request 8)

I bought the free hub set and have swapped the thicknesses around so I can replace the three plastic shims supplied with the XTR bottom bracket with two ally ones AND replace the two crappy 9 speed cassette spaces with them to 8)

I was looking for Ti versions but couldn’t seem to find any :-( :oops: :lol:

I will report back once received :wink:

They turned up today - so no complaints with delivery 8)

They are nicely made and nicely anodised 8)

Taking into account that they customised my kit for no extra cost I can highly recommend the product / company 8) (I am not linked to them in anyway ;-) :lol:)

I did look at others on the market and I didn't like the idea of plastic spacers or using two small spacers where one larger one would fit. I saw the ally ones at crc but the photo doesn't do them any favours and suggests the quality is something I wouldn't he happy with :-( (remember I am a fussy bugger :oops: :lol:) If I still had access to a lathe and hadn't found the velo solo ones, I would have made my own :D

I am sure I will have a photo to post up soon ;-)
