Hi!
I have a frame with a 73mm wide BSA threaded BB. Is the only difference between the GXP BB's (made by SRAM) the width of the plastic sleeve that connects to the BB cups?
If so could i buy same model but in 83mm BB and use the plastic sleeve from an 68/73mm BB? Only talking about SRAM branded threaded GXP here.
The 68/73mm versions are getting hard to find for a reasonable price....

Apologies if this has been done to death, i did search but people mostly talking about spindle length...

Cheers!

Just thought i'd come back and say that the shells are the same it is just the sleeve is a different length. They could have had one fits all, but no...

Hope this helps anyone who is also knee deep in bike "standards" and getting lost..
