Hi Guys! First post this, so apologise if its been asked before ( I have looked)
I have a Truvativ Blaze Howitzer Chain set to fit to my Cannondale F6 Disk 08. I have realised i need to buy a Howitzer BB, 68mm. BUT, what will be the best size to go for to make sure i have the correct chainline 51mm or 56mm? Any advice would be great! Im slowly but surely building up my components on this bike, will post some pics when i can work out how to! :D

    56 tends to be for DH bikes. 47.5 to 51 is normal.
