    Hi,

    It will depend on the cranks, specially if they're 3 piece; the bb shell is 73mm btw.

    For 2 piece cranks with external bearings just follow the instructions regarding how many and where to put the bearing spacers for a 73mm shell.

    Yeap if you'll be using 2 piece cranks, if you plan on using 3 piece cranks the bb will be 73 x spindle lenght for the crank set, usual length is 113 but varies depending on the brand and or model.
