Replacing the stock BB on my ML. I'm running a Chris King sleeve with the stock BB. I also have a Chris King BB on a non-fat SS that I can borrow.

Bike is stock with MWOD crank.

Questions...

1. Can I use the CK bearing cups along with the CK sleeve in the ML?

2. If yes to #1, will everything space out the same? The stock BB has tapered "spacers" between the outside of the bearing cup and the inside of the crank arm. Do I need to use the tapered spacers with the King BB?

3. I have a tool for GXP bottom brackets. Will it work on the CK cups?


Thanks.

i used a normal c/k mtb bottom bracket in my moonie, with no bb sleeve, worked no prob, but i did have to machine with our lathe the outer edge of the cup where the black alloy spacer that sits against the bearing, the 2 were just binding on each other,
