I have my eye on a seto of profile or redline flights. The flights have a Euro BB 19mm spindle. I have a EBB on my GF Ferrous. What would i need to make the conversion work. I suppose i could use my BB and shimm the spindle but the Bontrager race lite gxp look to wide. Plus i want to use the gxp's on another bike.

Thanks,

w/o knowing the bb spindle size of the GXP on the GF, its hard to say if the RL 19mm spindle will drop into that bb at all.....spacing or spindle diameter, etc.

best bet, just get a euro 19mm bb setup and keep that GXP bb w/ the cranks that came out of your bike.....

Fwiw , bmx cranksets usually wind up being substantiually heavier than a good mtb setup . 68 in the width of your BB in MM's , you still have to consider thread pitch , spindle diameter etc .
