    Help needed with a bottom bracket

    Can anyone help me please,
    I have a cannondale m1000 hard tail bike, and need to know the length of the bottom bracket needed.
    I have just purchased an FSA dorado crank.....
    Has anyone out there got any knowledge of this trusty old relic that I would rather keep then replace...

    Call C-dales tech support. They should be able to tell you what you need to know.

    I am going to take an educated guess.

    without knowing the crankset well. The shell for the frame is 68mm. More than likely, the spindle is 113mm. Take the bike to your LBS and have them do the install, that way you get the right part the first time.
