    problems putting xt crankset on '11 mission 3

    I'm trying to replace the hammerschmidt with an XT 3x10 crankset on a 2011 Mission 3. I replaced hammerschmidt BB with the XT BB, but when I put the crankset in, I can't get the spindle to reach all the way through. Its like is just barely too short. The driveside of the crankset appears to be flush with the BB, so I'm at a loss. Has anyone else replaced their Hammerschmidt with something else and did you have any problems?

    Did you use BB spacers? If your shell width is 73mm no spacers are needed IIRC.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common
