Bottom Bracket size for Deore Octalink Version 2 cranks on F300
Would anyone know the bottom bracket size that would fit a 2004 F300 which would be using Shimano Deore Ver.2 cranks. Supposedly there are 3 sizes that Shimano offers for this Octalink crank, 110mm, 113mm, and 118 mm but how would I find out what size to use? Sorry a newbie question.
All Cannondale frames have a 68mm (English threads) bottom bracket shell width, the lengths you listed depends on which crank you use with it.
Here is a link I found with the spindle sizes: http://www.bike-on.com/speedzone/CrankPricing.htm
I'm assuming its compatible with 113 and 118.
You might want to look at this sight to see if you can narrow down which you need, read about the chainline bit. http://www.sheldonbrown.com/bbsize.html#chainline
