    New question here. Spearfish configuration question. BB/HT2 stuff

    Morning lads.

    I'm running a Spearfish in the UK. Was built up by my LBS in part but mostly by me.

    Last time in there i asked him to fit the PF / HT2 converters.

    SRAM Press Fit 30 to BSA Adaptor Kit | Buy Online | ChainReactionCycles.com

    I then ran a standard XTR HT2 bottom bracket.

    When swapping due to excessive play in the BB, i noticed that he'd set the spacers up with 1 spacer on the non-drive side and no spacer on the drive side. I assume this was for chain line reasons rather than anything else ?

    So i was just wondering how you're running your BB configuration on spearfishes ?

    thanks.

    I tried an adapted gxp for a while and finally gave up and bought the correct standard. I never could get the adapter cups to ride true in the bottom bracket. I gotta say, it works much better with the press fit 30 too. I found a Sram x-9 crankset for nearly free and that is what I am running.

    I am running a standard Sram press fit BB with the Wheels Mfg. adapters and a RaceFace crank. Its not really a good fix and I plan on getting the RaceFace adapter BB soon.

    Parlee PF30-Shimano/24mm BB is working flawlessly in my SF 1 with Rotor Crankset.

    Praxis Works | Conversion Kit

    I installed this in my wife's Spearfish. Works perfect. No movement, no creaking.

    My local shop told me that Rotor (Rotor UK > Rotor Bike Components > Welcome to Rotor UK) do a good pressfit 30 bb that accepts the 24mm Shimano cranksets. I've not tried it yet but they reckon they've fitted a couple and they're good.
