    Make sure the spindle width is the same as your current bottom bracket.

    Listen to Jason..

    that BB is a 118mm spindle. Your frame has a 135mm rear hub, and thus should have a 113mm spindle for the 47.5 mm chainline that the 135 rear gives.

    This bb will put your cranks 2.5mm further out than ideal. It will work, but it is not the 'correct' bb for the application, and thus not ideal.

    2.5 mm doesnt sound like much. Will it affect the performance or get damaged or damage other components? Pricepoint doesnt have the 113mm bb. I cant spend much more than 40 plus shiping and tax.

    I just read on the product description and it says they only come with a 118 mm spindle. What other BB can i use that doesnt cost too much?
