    Nickel gxp bottom bracket question

    My lbs built my nickel and i have a x9 crankset gxp bottom bracket.

    The nickel has a 73mm bb and sram says no spacers should be used but he used a spacer on the non drive side and said it had to be done.

    this sound right??

    No. I'm using an old FireX crank, GXP. No spacers.

    Get another bike shop....He's confusing Shimano and Sram. 73mm BB on Shimano takes one spacer on the drive side and none on the left. Sram takes no spacers on 73mm.
