    Cannondale rebuild - Truvativ Howitzer BB size?

    Hello all,
    Rebuilding an 05' Cannondale F300 with a bunch of newer ((better) ok, alot better parts) and got a howitzer BB to use with the hussefelt 2.2 bg crankset i got. now the one they sent me before i could recount them is a 56mm, i believe i need a 51mm but can't find any info on which would be a better size, i know i need to wait until i get it together but didn't know how much it would jack with my chainline and trail if i tried out the 56mm.

    so should i just send the thing back when it arrives or try it out?

    i won't even get into the headset problems i've had

    If you are running a FD you need the 51mm. If you are running a box guide set-up you'll need the 56mm.
