    Tools to install BB?

    I am about to buy either a raceface crank/bb combo or the e*thirteen option (one of the DH ones). As far as I can tell, the only specialty tool required is an isis bb tool. Is this correct? I am also running a 9 spd shifter der. and cassette. What's the average tooth configuration for this setup on a DH bike (34/36 etc.). Thanks, I am somewhat nieve when it comes to drive-trains. I also think a shortcage der is in order not medium?

    Thanks

    THe ISIS BB tool and an 8mm allen should do the trick. Put some anti seize on the BB cups and preferably torque them in to spec. My experience has been that BB's creak because they are too tight not lose.

    When you want to take off the cranks you'll need to buy a crank puller too. It'd probably just be a good idea to buy it now.
