    M770 BB Cups with M970 Cranks -- yes/no?

    So, I have this pair of XTR M970 cranks that need a replacement bearing/cup on the drive side.

    And I also have this XT M770 crankset/bb that's in a different bike.

    Anyone know if the XTR cranks will work with the XT BB cups?

    -EDIT- Just slapped the XTR arms into the XT BB and it seems to fit up. Was worried about the preload adjusting ring, but so far, so good...

    Yes it will work. I use FSA with ceramic bearing because I got a deal on it with XTR 960. Most modern external bottom brackets will interchange with most cranks.
