    BB size on 2001 Slayer ?

    I'm building up a 2001 Slayer for my brother and can't seem to find out what BB length I should use. I'm going to be using a Race Face Ride XC crank. I'm thinking 113 but those stays look pretty fat. I know I should be lining up the parts and going from there but the crank isn't here yet and I was hoping to get a BB before it came. Anyone have any ideas ?

    TIA

    Do you have the X-type Race Face Ride XC crankset on the way or have you managed to find an ISIS version?

    Race Face made things confusing towards the end of the ISIS production, the Turbines always used 113mm and then the Evolve cranks started using 108mm like the road cranks. Sadly Race Face doesn't have the old install instructions linked on their website anymore so you can't even see what the ISIS Ride cranks called for.

    I buit a 2002 (same bike) for my brother and used a 113 ISIS with no problems at all. I have a 2004 with the same 113 BB and the Race Face Evolve crank and don't have any issues.
    There are no "mistakes"; only learning curves.
