    Setting up outboard bearing BBs

    Just picked up a used outboard bearing style crankset & BB.
    Searches have brought up comments about shims, spacers, and driveline spacing but no actual setup howto.

    What do I have to do to set up an outboard bearing BB/crank?

    Brand is a little critical here...setting up a Shimano will be different than setting up a Race Face or Truvativ

    Each brand has tech manuals on their websites

    It's the FSA MEGA EXO BB and V-Drive crankset.

    would this help
    I used to ride to Win ... Now I ride to Grin

    While my guitar gently weeps, my bike sits there mocking me

    So did a call to FSA's tech support.
    Thanks all.
