    Hope bb and cranks

    Hello to all riders. I'm pretty new to all of this so please forgive me if I mess this up.
    I have just recently got back into mountain biking and bought myself a Scott scale been riding it hard for the past year and it is time to start upgrading the components on it that are not living up to the abuse I give it. The question is I want to put some hope cranks and hope bb on there but unsure if they will fit.at the moment my bb is shimano octilink v2 73x118. Any help would be great to point me in the right way.

    Perfect for your Scott - choose MegaEXO and you'll be good.
    HOPE are great stuff, are built for extreme riding. The crank arms alone are the weight of the FSA SLK crankset in the link.
    Whatever your choice -- EXO- style bottom bracket, in 68/73mm (it's std size)

    Right - BSA/English Thread. Just do not buy an Italian BB. Unless you end up having with a bike for it someday. Then buy it.
