I am thinking about buying this BB.

and i was wondering if i can use it without a e type de railer as i just have a normal one.

Thanks.

    you will need to use a spacer.

    and check that the chain line is not too far out.

  • Cheers nick.

    Also do you know how to find out how long spindle length i need for FSA alpha drive cranks,
    like 113mm, 118mm etc.

    Thanks

    measure your current chain line. then measure your current axle length then see what axle length you need to give the same chain line in the makers tech docs.

    but as the bb only comes in one size look at the crank makers info.
