    Inbred Bottom Bracket Help

    Just ordered a 16 inch Inbred 29er Single Speed LTD Edition...

    I am basically just parts swapping from my 2009 GF Cobia.

    Just had the bottom bracket off today and realized its a 73x118, not 68...

    So what do you guys think, 68x118 or 68x113 (octalink)? I'm running a 32T chainring in the middle but would also like the option of 33T. Just using the Cobia's stock Octalink cranks.

    Here is the BB I ordered before second guessing myself and canceling the order (68x113 version):
    Amazon.com: Shimano BB-ES25 Octalink V2 Bottom Bracket: Sports & Outdoors

    Eventually I will work on upgrading all of these cheap parts and stuff, but for now I'm just trying to get rolling on the new Inbred as cheaply as possible!

    Thanks!

    I decided to go with the 68x118. That way I can switch between frames easier if I ever want to since I would use the same wheelset with either frame, same cranks, and now same width bottom bracket, creating the same chainline on both bikes.
