    BB size?

    I recently mail ordered an RF Evolve XC, and BB. It was a complete pain to get the stuff (I am in Germany) and the clowns sent along the wrong size (113 mm. v. the recommended 108 ) BB. I dont want to go thru the pain of returning just the BB, and there are no decent LBS around to try to swap with, so is it possible or advisable to run the 113? Will it effect anything other than the chain line? I will be using it on a Trek 8000, w/ XT/XTR derailleurs.
    Thanks-
    Juano

    BB size

    My understanding is that 113 bb is the standard length with isis cranks. I just changed a 110 square taper bb and crank for a 113 isis set up and it worked out ok. I assume they got the shell size correct, 68 or 73. Good luck, FSR.

    You will be fine running a 113, don't worry.
