    Help : Bottom Bracket Lenght

    Hi Guys, I'm planning to get the New Race Face NEXT Carbon Cranks for my Moto-Lite Project. I saw that there is a 68mm & 73mm Bottom Bracket lenght in the specs.
    What is that? What should I get for the Moto-Lite, 68 or 73mm?

    Need help on this. Also, kindly enlighten on what is the meaning of that dimensions.

    Thanks in Advance.

    Cheers!!!

    73mm

    means one spacer drive-side.

    What's the rest of your build?

    Thanks for the info.

    @ dulyebr! Thanks also. The rest of the build will be SRAM X.0 Triggers / Rear Der.
    C.King Hubs on DT 4.2D, 2009 TALAS RLC, Thomson X4 Stem , Thomson MasterPiece Seatpost, WTB Pure V Team Saddle, Magura Marta SL Brakes, C. King Headset . C. King Bottom Bracket, Scwalbe Nobby Nics, TIME ATAC XS Carbon Pedals, Race Face NEXT Handlebar.

    I am also thinking if I can use the X-Gen Front Deraileur on the ML. Maybe you can help me with this. Is is possible? I heard that ML require a Low-Band Front Deraileur.

    Thanks again!

    Sounds incredible.

    I'd go with Shimano. I found that going XTR over XT made a meaningful difference in shifting performance.

    Are you replacing the Turner?

    Thanks! Well, I'm thinking of Running Shimano free on the drivetrain. Do you think I can use a SRAM X-Gen Front Deraileur?

    I'm keeping my Spot.
