Ok, so I have a Kona Coiler frame and it has a 68mm bb shell and I am getting a Holzfeller crankset. Anyway, the question is, what size bottom bracket should I get. Oh, and by the way I know I need a howitzer bottom bracket, I just don't know what size. Hope someone can help! Thanks!

There are three versions of the bottom bracket. The first, for 68 or 73mm width bottom bracket shells and a 51mm chainline is for people running triple cranks. The second, for a 68 or 73mm shell and a 56mm chainline, is for people running a bashguard in place of the outer chainring and have either a single or double ring inside the bashguard. The third is designed for an 83mm bottom bracket shell—something we’re seeing more and more on bigger-hit bikes—and a 56mm chainline.

You need one of the first two.
