If I change my 2014 tripple crankset to an XT double will I need to get the BB replaced or will i just be able to swap the cranks over and keep the BB that comes with the new cranks as a spare? Current cranks have only done 700km.

    Depends entirely on the cranks and BB.

    If you're changing from a Shimano Hollowtech 2 chainset then yes, you'll be able to keep you BB. Anything else, it's a maybe.

    Hi, yes, they are currently Hollowtech 2 cranks. That is good news, cheers.
