    Can you mix ISIS crank arms and BB's

    I was told I need to find an E-type BB to make my chain guide work. I have Hussefelt cranks but with regular bearings, not Howitzer type. I can't even see where an external BB would fit unless the crank arms are different on those sets.(or it just makes the whole setup wider)
    Anyway, can I buy a Race Face or any other brand if it's ISIS?

    The point of the ISIS standard is to make crank arms and bottom brackets using the ISIS standard interchangeable. I don't believe the Howitzer is ISIS compatible, though.

    Howitzer is not compatible with ISIS. But all ISIS bbs are compatible with all ISIS crank arms.
