    Raceface next and compatible bottom brackets

    After a long bicycle hibernation due to army related injuries I've recently been given the go ahead to start biking again and I found my dear old cannondale all dusty along with a box of parts that I planned to install in 2009 (!).

    When I bought the Next crank supplied with it was the XTR BB, but will said BB actually fit the Next crankset?
    My mechanic and others I've seen inquire about this are saying no, but RF said that it would in a very short conversation that took place yesterday.

    Which is it?
    If someone have one of these cranks with a Shimano XTR BB that would pretty much settle it.

    Pic for reference:

    Race Face X-Type cranksets are compatible with Shimano mountain HT II bottom brackets, including the XTR

    I've used a Shimano external BB on my RF Xtype crank set in the past. It's identical. XT/XTR will be fine.

    You won't have a problem. I've personally run the XTR BB with my next crankset and it works great. I run a King BB now though after the XTR crapped out... and that works fine too.

    Get your BB spacing right, throw the cranks on and get riding.
