    FSA Platinum BB in Muluk Q

    I've installed lots of BBs through the years and usually the left side "cups" end up flush with the shell.

    Not tonight....

    This is what the FSA 100mm unit looks like in my 2012 Mukluk.

    Is this normal, or is something amiss? It didn't come with any spacers.


    Here it is with the LH crank snugged down...

    The same thing happened with my 2011 9:Zero:7.

    I'd typically run one 2.5mm spacer on the drive side with that setup to give yourself a bit more chain clearance and eliminate the unsightly red fixing cup sticking out the not drive side.

    Same thing happened with my Pugsley and this BB, and mine also came without spacers. I assume it's sized that way to fit an EType front mech?

    I went down to my LBS and got a couple of 2 mm spacers and it worked fine. With the bb spaced out to the drive side I have loads of tire clearance with Rolling Darryls.

    Found a couple of 2mm spacers in my toolbox, seemed to do the trick. Thanks.

    Not mechanically needed, but if you didnt want to space it over towards the DS, it would look much less sloppy if you put a threaded lockring (from an old loose ball BB) over the protruding thread on the NDS.
