    SRAM GXP cranks and Hope bb - HELP!

    So, i've got a bike with a 73mm bb shell, a Hope bb with SRAM inserts and a single ringle Sram X9 crankset.

    Looking at the Hope website, I should have 1 drive side spacer fitted and that's it. Set up like this, there is noticeable side to side play in the cranks. Fitting a none drive side spacer help to almost eliminate the play but it's still there.

    Any idea what i'm doing wrong here? The cranks don't have one of the wave washers on the drive side - should it have one for a conventional GXP bb?

    Thanks.

    GXP cranks need muscle when mounting in my experience. I had no problems with my X0 cranks/Hope BB on my Yeti SB66 when I had one. 73mm spacing there as well.
