    bb/chain device advice please

    hopefully all this information helps as im 10000% confused right now,

    Frame : http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/M...x?ModelID=2650

    Cranks : http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/M...x?ModelID=1022
    Cheapo cranks, they will do for now til i have more funds.

    Chainring : http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/M...px?ModelID=201

    BB : http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/M...x?ModelID=2962
    Again a cheap bb but will do for now til i have more funds

    All i want is for it to all work i currently have a 118mm bb as i quote from the crc website

    " Question: what size bb does the frame take ?
    CRC Replies: 68 shell, Axle length depends on your cranks. 113 usually for a triple, and 118 for a single with chain device. "

    Which chain device should i go for ?

    I wan't to make sure whatever device i buy it will work with my cranks/chainring, and what size BB i need. Do i need 118mm ( currently have ) 113 or 113mm e-type


    Sorry for long post but im trying to get to the bottom of this so i can ride !

    you need an e-type bb

    "e-type" bb's leave room between the frame and drive-side bb cup for a chainguide plate. you need one that's E-68x113mm (or E-68x118mm, though i doubt this size exists).
