Hi :)

I've decided to build a bike up from the frame and I am in the process of figuring out what it's gona involve and what components I will be using.

It's an On-One Inbred 26er frame which has a 68mm english threaded BB shell.

I am planning on using a Shimano Deore M590 9 speed crankset which according to the Shimano site comes with a BB51 Deore bottom bracket (english threaded and compatible with either 68mm or 73mm shells).

I think I will also need a Hollowtech II BB tool.

As far as I can tell this should all work fine and be compatible?

Sorry for the annoying question, I've tried to do as much reasearch as possible, but I just want to make sure before I spend the money on components which might not work!

Or you can take it in to the shop for the final tightening, if necessary. It will take them 30 seconds.
Ribble has some good pricing currently which is price matched in the UK by CRC and Wiggle.

Yes, I have that exact crank on a 29er Inbred as a 1X9. The BB will have spacers and instructions. The crank usually comes with a BB.
If you haven't already bought the Inbred, order the seat post clamp at the same time, the 28.6 is a bit hard to find.
