    ok BB question here.

    Is there such a thing as a BB spacer?? IE: someone has a 68mm BB shell on their frame didnt reali?ze it and they bought a 73MM BB on eBay brandnew and can't return it such as myself ?
    Its tight but not threaded in all the way ... i just want to keep the threads clean moreso then anything

    ya 2.5mm spacer is very common and usually is thrown in the box with the 68/73 BB. Your LBS should have them and hopefully for free or beg for one here.
