    New question here. Question about BB sets

    Planning on buying a new Bottom Bracket and I am wondering the difference between....

    TruVativ LE Square BB 68E/73x113mm and a

    Truvativ Bottom Bracket 68x113mm Square Taper

    The 68E/73 is confusing?!

    The 68E/73 works on a 68mm shell with an E type derailleur OR on a 73mm shell. The 68 works only on a 68mm shell with a standard clamp derailleur.

    The 68E/73X113 is for a 68mm frame that requires an E type front derailleur or a 73mm bb shell frame. If you need a standard 68mm bottom bracket go with the 68X113.

    Thanks for the replys! I think I am getting the gist of the bike mechanical thing!

    Now to order up bunches of tools! Filling the tool box is always great!!
