Got myself a KCNC K-Type external BB (HTII compatible)

However, unlike most shimano kit etc it comes with no instructions on spacing.

It says: fits 73mm shells with no spacers, and 68mm shells with spacers provided.

However... it comes with shitloads of different spacers, a rubber ring and no indication of where the spacers go and how many are needed. And WTF is the rubber ring for? :)

Anyone shed any light on this for me please as I need to get my chainline perfect (1x10 setup with LG1)

Also, I have a 68mm BB shell (Meta 4x)

Its this one: http://clee-cycles.co.uk/esite/P1017/product

    fitting is just the same as for the original.

    shimano 2 and 1
    GXP 1 and 1.

    and the ring well who knows.

    Apprently the rubber ring is for 'discrepencies' with BB Shell width LOL...

    So:

    1 x 2.5mm spacer non-drive-side

    2 x 2.5mm spacer drive-side?

    And this should be fine with the LG1 Nick?

    Thanks mate. 8)
