    Perfect thanks bud just put my mind at rest is your BB 73mm if so did you still use spacer as well ??

    Yeah mines 73mm, so just one spacer. My old bb had a spacer when I took it off so put it back on when I fitted the hope, I cycle with the mechanics from my LBS so I remember checking with them and they confirmed all ok.
