BB compatibility

edited May 2008 in MTB workshop & tech
:oops:

I've just bought an identiti drjekyll and i will need to buy a bottom bracket for it, but i dont know what to get (size/type) The identiti website says it is an 68mm English Threaded type, so any advice on what to get? I will be using it for trails and generally hooning around, so i dont need anything too lightweight.

Thanks in advance

    Any will do so long as it specs 68mm or 73mm with a 5mm spacer.

    It would be better to match the cranks and BB as they tend to fit a bit better due to machine matching.
  • Thanks mate, much appreciated :D

    sorry what is the question?

    get what ever you want that fits.

    eg hone/saint/pigmy etc.....

    What chainset do you have? There's no point getting a BB that doesn't fit your chainset and there's 6 BB interface standards that I can think of (which means there's more).

    apologies, i didnt word my question very well. I was looking for advice as to what fits that particular frame. I'll be buying a bb and chainset together.

    any will fit if you get the right parts.

    What do you want to buy?

    in fact i can not think of a set up that will not fit.

    please consider that what ever you get you will be running a single front ring.
