    Advice on how to mount XT-M760

    I have just bought teh Shomano XT-M760 crankset and I would like to know if there is anything I shoould be aware when I put on my Yeti. I have heard that you should use a special tool to make sure the cups are properly aligned. Is this true or is it possible to mount it without it?

    Any other advices are ver welcome

    You can get the bottom bracket cups faced. It's helps keep everything straight. But your Yeti should be pretty good anyway. You'll need a bb tool and the end cap tool. You can try your LBS to see if they have any XTR extras or pick up the Park BBT-9.

    My bottom bracket cups are faced - I had some problems with my previous RF Deus crankset so that I should not be a problem and I have the tool you mention so that should not be a problem.

    thanks for your help

    The XT is much easier to setup than the Deus. No little washers to fiddle with.
