    i would say you have miss measured.

    as RaceFace dont make a 109mm ISIS bb.

    but to check take it out and see what it says on the shell.

    then you can get any ISIS BB.

    I'd wait for further confirmation but I think it should be ok. 1mm is'nt adversely going to effect your chainline. You will have to tweek the H/L limiters on the front mech but that should be about it.
  • Thanks for that chaps can any one recomend any other make for around £60 seen a crank brothers one and fsa any input would be greatfull

  • superstar components one, supposed to be very good indeed, plus cheap.

    Crank bros is good, as is the FSA platinum, SKF are the best if you can find them.
