here's a related question guys.

I am currently running the Hollowtech 1's on my Trek Liquid along with an e13 SRS chainguide system. In order to run this setup I needed to go with a much bigger BB spindle (73x122 as opposed to 118). If I got to Hollowtech II XT's or Saints, will I have issues?

Thanks,

RJ

ps, I mean more issues than my attachment disorder and a slight OCD about my bikes....

I haven't run that setup, but would recommend you take a look in the turner forum, I have seen builds there with (what I would think are ) similar setups to the one you describe
