Isn't the size on the old BB?

Email/phone Orange if no-one here knows, they are very helpful folk.

sales@orangebikes.co.uk (the only Orange email addy on the site)

it's a 68mm shell, use 2 spacers on the drive side and 1 on the nondrive assuming your not using one of those godawful bb mounted front mechs!

hope that solves your problem :D
