Parts & Bikes / Re: Bottom Bracket inner tube spacer
« Last post by DaddyCool on Yesterday at 10:36:30 AM »
Hello, I use these spacers for all my bikes. I assume it really makes sense for the bearings. The only reason not to use it would be to be able to make the crank spin less easy by tightening the bolts. But this can be done in many other ways. I never tried the grip flange version but I but some cut out plastic rings between the sprocket and the bearing and this follows the same idea. For me this works great.
I never tried it but assume that this is also a good idea:

The centre tube is to stop the bearings from being side loaded when tightened down.

I went with 160's but might eventually try shorter down the road. I definitely think I'm gonna put the spacer in there, I always have, was just curious if it's common or not these days amongst riders. I don't think I'd want to risk the wear on the bearings.

Unfortunately the bottom bracket kit in the photo won't fit my new frame. I bought it because the specs on the page I I bought the frame from said "mid bottom bracket" but it looks like it's actually spanish. I'll email them and let them know they need to update it so this doesn't happen to anyone else.

So I've got to order a Spanish BB kit instead so I won't actually be setting up the new frame now, probably in another week unless one of the local bike shops happens to carry them around here. I'm gonna check tomorrow and if not then order one online.
