    VT bottom bracket question

    What spindle width should I spec out for my VT frame?

    I want to run an XT (octallink design) crankset. I was wondering if the VT just took a conventional 113mm or need a wider 118-ish size spindle.

    Thanks in advance.

    I run a 113mm with my Truvativ set, but the cranks specs call for a 113BB. So you'll have to check which the cranks call out for.

    Makes no difference vis √* vis the frame.

    If you had an LX chainset you'd need a 121. Depends on the crankset, as mentioned previously.

    Thanks everyone for the input.

    I ended up going with a new outboard BB design, the Evolve XC version.
