    quick, help me find a cheap BB for my build

    Hey. I have these cranks that I got a while ago and i finally got a frame to start building up...

    ...Mountain Cycle Rumble, it's sick. I'll post a pic and thread when I get it all built.

    Anyway, here are the pics.

    And in the Manual for the Rumble, it says the BB 73mm shell.

    So, I dunno. If you know of any on sale, let me know.

    ...Otherwise just let me know the size and BB type i'm lookin for if you can.

    Thanks a lot.

    Here are the pics.

    That's a Howitzer interface. Only Truvativ makes it.

    ...ok? so is that the only type Truvativ makes?

    And can they be found under or around 30.00?

    And when i'm looking at sizing, does it have to say 73mm or is there any other sizes i can use. Oh also i'm going to run a bb mount chainguide, so. if that makes a difference.

    Truvativ also makes GXP (won't fit) and ISIS (won't fit) and PowerSpline (won't fit).

    The chain line is the center line between the center line of the frame and the center line of the crankset. Basically, it's going to be how far out the cranks sit. The middle of the cassette should line up with the middle chainring position.

    You probably need the narrower chainline.

    Spend ten more dollars and get the Team BB. The Sette tool will work, yes.

    Yes it will fit, any of the Howitzer BB's will. I just recommended the Team version because it is known to last longer and perform better than the XR version.
