Hello!

I'll be running some RF Next LP's w/ 20 - 30 - 42 rings and I need to get a square taper BB to accomodate them. Please help.

73X113? 110?

I don't know

the Dos uses a 68mm BB

Anyone have some insight they'd like to share?

Ride on :)
Your first note said 73mm, just wanted to make sure you started with the correct width.

I have not built one with next square taper so I'm not sure, but if my memory serves me right, they suggested a 110/113mm.

Hey Joshua, I tried replying to your email but it kept coming back undeliverable, anyway...

First and foremost, as Jason stated, it's a 68mm shell. I used a 68x110mm square taper with RF Next LP's on my Dos. I had a RaceFace taperlock BB still in good shape. One of the great features of that BB is the adjustable chainline. It does take a bit of trial and error but ultimately a great setup. I'm thinking that 113mm in a Shimano might put the chainline out/off a bit from perfection with the LP's, never tried it though.

Good luck
