    Race Face X-Type BB Compatible With Stylo? X-Post Drivetrain

    So the bottom bracket on my Truvative single speed Stylo crank is toast. Just so happens that I have a Race Face X-Type BB in my parts bin. Seems like the spindle fits fine in the cups. Can I use this BB with my Stylo crank?
    There are three kinds of people: those of us that are good at math and those that are not.

    No. Raceface uses Shimano dimensions. Sram/Truvativ is the odd one out in the external bottom bracket world.

    they are talking about external BBs.

    raceface and shimano has the same spindle diameter (compatible) and the truvativ has tapered spindle (not gonna work).
