    fuel external BB issues?

    i am about to put a XT 760 crank on my fuel and i was wondering if there were any clearance issues between the shell and swing arm, it looks close.

    not sure why there would be? higher end fuels come with external bottom bearing cranksets. just make sure your shell is faced and chased.

    You need to make sure you use the correct spacers

    Just make sure you follow the Shimano instructions and use the correct number of spacers. You need two on the drive side and one spacer on the non drive side if you are running a standard tripple ring.
