So, I am putting an XT Hollowtech II (outboard bearings) on my FSR 120. But, I can seemt to get it to shift correctly. The bottom bracket comes with three 2mm spacers (all of which are required, as the BB shell is only 68mm on the FSR 120).
I tried 1 spacer on the drive-side, and couldn't get the front derailleur to drop the chain from the middle ring to the small ring (looks to be a chainline issue, as the drive-side is pretty wide with even that 1 spacer).
I tried no spacers on the drive-side, but that didn't work either. The front derailleur's cage would contact the pivot bushing and not allow the cage to move far enough to drop the chain into the little ring (although the chainline looked better).
Any ideas? All of you with FSR 120 Pros: how are they set up? I may try a 1, 1.5, or .5mm spacer on the driveside to see if I can fine-tune it. I have a Dura Ace Hollowtech II BB/Crank on my road bike and have never had shifting issues with it. I guess if all else fails, I can always go back to the Octalink BB setup....But I would rather not!
