Re: BB & crank compatibility


I can tell you your problem is the spindle length on the bottom bracket. You’ll need a replacement V2 BB with a longer spindle length. You can measure it when the crank arms are off, or take out the BB and it’ll say probably "68×113" or something. So instead of 113 you need longer like 118.

Did you buy these parts separate? It would be strange for them to both be on the bike and not be right. As for the chart you wanted, all you need to know is if your crankset is an Octalink V2 then that means you need a V2 BB.

What bike is it on? I wonder if the problem is also too wide of a BB shell…..
