    112.5 or 116mm BB for my xtr 952 on surly 1x1?

    suggestions? i need to get a new one for my surly arriving this week and am not sure which will work best...i've never really paid attention to bb sizing but with the XTR there are two choices!!

    What cog are you going to use? It all depends on the chainline of the cog.

    The 112.5 will get you around a 54mm chainline for the outer ring position (assuming you're using a triple ring spider); the 116 will put you out around 58mm.

    I'm using an american classic spider on 952 xtr cranks with a spot chainring 34T and in the rear i'll be first starting with an 18T chris king steel with boone ti spacers with the possibility of dropping to 17 or 16T after a few months.

    Once i figure out which one i need i'll let you know. I'll need to make my decision by the end of today...how old is it? a new one retails for 50 dollars including shipping from a few of the online places i've checked...

    I have a couple M952 112.5mm in perfect shape, $30 shipped if that's what you need.

    brand new almost, it doesn't look perfect but it does once it's installed, no harm to the cups or anything and I only rode it for a couple rides...all dry...only a handful of miles

    shoot, I've hardly ridden the bike at all
