    Truvativ FireX 3.3 GXP has two different spacers, how does it go?

    I bought a used Truvativ FireX 3.3 GXP bottom bracket/crankset, to be installed on my Giant NRS frame with a 68mm bottom shell. The bottom bracket comes with two spacers and online documentation suggests that I need both spacers.

    The problem is, one spacer is thicker than the other. Which spacer goes to the drive side and which spacer goes to the other? The manual does not specify.

    Please adivse.

    Many thanks.

    Thicker on the right, on the drive-side.

    A couple of my Shimano cranksets are actually installed with one spacer left, two right, all of the same size. My guess is that Truvative gave you a thicker spacer instead of asking you to double-up..

    Well, all should be fine unless you use E-typem front mech.
