You'd need a different bottom bracket for those cranks or different cranks for the Race Face bottom bracket.
Ok. Thanks for the info.CJLED said:You'd need a different bottom bracket for those cranks or different cranks for the Race Face bottom bracket.
Is there another brand/company that makes 68x118 BB aside from SHIMANO® ES-71 BOTTOM BRACKET?Squash said:68x118 bottom bracket. In 05 Specialized changed the bb width to maintain a 50mm chain line. If you get a 113mm your cranks will be to close to the chain stays and your chain line and thus your shifting will be off.
If you are using the stock crank set, you are stuck with the shimano bottom bracket. Specialized uses a shimano type spline interface for their 3 piece crank sets. To my knowledge nobody else makes a splined bottom bracket that is compatable with the shimano interface.MtnLight said:Is there another brand/company that makes 68x118 BB aside from SHIMANO® ES-71 BOTTOM BRACKET?
Also, I'm planning to buy a spare tire 26 x 2.7 for Downhill. Will this fit on my Eduro 05 Comp 130 stock fork?
both. If you are hitting both then there isn't much you can do about it. It isn't the spacing of your cranks but the position of your feet. If you are only hitting one side then a spacer or two might solve the problem, BUT!, and this is a BIG but, adding or subtracting spacers, or moving then from one side to the other will affect your chain line. Chain line is critical for proper shifting both front and rear. Chain line is the relationship between the center cog on the cassette and the middle chain ring of the crank. Chain line is the line that can be drawn between these two, and that line needs to be as straight as possible in relation to the frame. The usual reference point on the frame for determining chanin line is the seat tube. The Enduro needs or uses a 50mm chain line. That is the middle ring of the crank needs to be 50mm from the seat tube in order to achieve proper alignment with the cassette for optimum shifting performance. You can fudge the chain line about 1mm one way or the other, a 49 or 51mm line will work. But much over that and shifting will start to suffer.MagnumPI said:Sorry to hijack your thread judd but I'm having problems with my newly built 05 S-works enduro bottom bracket and I didnt want to start a similar thread.
I dont know what width the bottom bracket should be. By that I mean I have an X-type bottom bracket fitted but my heels keep bashing against the seatstay. Can anyone tell me the correct width please?
Does anyone else have this problem? I ride toes-out but it's never been a problem on any other bike except the spesh. Thats whats making me think I need some spacers on my bottom bracket.
BTW - The b/b was taken off another bike and it was all built my me, my first time, so I'm expecting it all to be my fault.
