    BB for Turner XCE / RF Turbine

    I just picked up a square-taper Race Face Turbine crankset for my Turner XCE. I am wondering what length BB spindle will fit. Turner seems to indicate 113mm spindle w/ 73mm spacing (at least for the 5-spot, couldn't find data for the XCE), while the one compatibility chart I could find online said the Turbines needed 107-110mm, without reference to the bike. I'm a little confused by the conflicting information and want to ensure I get the right components. What BB specifications will work best?

    Thanks,
    Aaron

    113x73 is the BB you need. I have an XCE with that very crank and that's what I use.

    More information

    By the way, Race Face says that 113mm should be used with Shimano BB's, but that their square tapers are thicker and 110mm should be used.

    I got a Shimano BB, so I should be set with the longer measurement; just thought this information might be helpful for someone else.

    Yours,
    Aaron
